We present an alternative proof of a result of Kenig and Toro, which states that if $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ is a two sided NTA domain, with Ahlfors-David regular boundary, and the $\log$ of the Poisson kernel associated to $\Omega$ as well as the $\log$ of the Poisson kernel associated to ${\Omega_{\rm ext}}$ are in VMO, then the outer unit normal $\nu$ is in VMO . Our proof exploits the usual jump relation formula for the non-tangential limit of the gradient of the single layer…

We show that if $\Omega\subset\mathbb R^3$ is a two-sided NTA domain with AD-regular boundary such that the logarithm of the Poisson kernel belongs to $\textrm{VMO}(\sigma)$, where $\sigma$ is the

Let $$\Omega ^+\subset {\mathbb {R}}^{n+1}$$ Ω + ⊂ R n + 1 be an NTA domain and let $$\Omega ^-= {\mathbb {R}}^{n+1}\setminus \overline{\Omega ^+}$$ Ω - = R n + 1 \ Ω + ¯ be an NTA domain as well.
Structure of sets which are well approximated by zero sets of harmonic polynomials
• Mathematics
• 2015
The zero sets of harmonic polynomials play a crucial role in the study of the free boundary regularity problem for harmonic measure. In order to understand the fine structure of these free boundaries

We provide a potential theoretic characterization of vanishing chord-arc domains under minimal assumptions. In particular we show that, in the appropriate class of domains, the oscillation of the
$L^2$-boundedness of gradients of single layer potentials for elliptic operators with coefficients of Dini mean oscillation-type
• Mathematics
• 2021
We consider a uniformly elliptic operator LA in divergence form associated with an (n+1)×(n+1)-matrix A with real, merely bounded, and possibly non-symmetric coefficients. If ωA(r) = sup x∈Rn+1 − ∫
Reifenberg Flatness and Oscillation of the Unit Normal Vector
• Mathematics
• 2017
We show (under mild topological assumptions) that small oscillation of the unit normal vector implies Reifenberg flatness. We then apply this observation to the study of chord-arc domains and to a
Mutual Absolute Continuity of Interior and Exterior Harmonic Measure Implies Rectifiability
• Mathematics
• 2016
We show that, for disjoint domains in the euclidean space whose boundaries satisfy a nondegeneracy condition, mutual absolute continuity of their harmonic measures implies absolute continuity with
