@article{Baroni2014AQM, title={A Quantitative Modulus of Continuity for the Two-Phase Stefan Problem}, author={Paolo Baroni and Tuomo Kuusi and Jos{\'e} Miguel Urbano}, journal={Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis}, year={2014}, volume={214}, pages={545-573} }

AbstractWe derive the quantitative modulus of continuity
$$\omega(r)=\left[ p+\ln \left( \frac{r_0}{r}\right)\right]^{-\alpha (n, p)},$$ω(r)=p+lnr0r-α(n,p), which we conjecture to be optimal for solutions of the p-degenerate two-phase Stefan problem. Even in the classical case p = 2, this represents a twofold improvement with respect to the early 1980’s state-of-the-art results by Caffarelli– Evans (Arch Rational Mech Anal 81(3):199–220, 1983) and DiBenedetto (Ann Mat Pura Appl 103(4):131–176… Expand
