We derive an improved Poincare inequality in connection with the Babuska-Aziz and Friedrichs-Velte inequalities for differential forms by estimating the domain specific optimal constants figuring in the respective inequalities with each other provided the domain supports the Hardy inequality. We also derive upper estimates for the constants of a star-shaped domain by generalizing the known Horgan-Payne type estimates for planar and spatial domains to higher dimensional ones. 


Inequalities of Babuška-Aziz and Friedrichs-Velte for differential forms
For sufficiently smooth bounded plane domains, the equivalence between the inequalities of Babuška–Aziz for right inverses of the divergence and of Friedrichs on conjugate harmonic functions wasExpand
A bound for the optimal constant in an inequality of Ladyzhenskaya and Solonnikov
Ladyzhenskaya & Solonnikov (1976) introduced a representation theorem in R 3 , which contained an integral inequality involving a multiplicative dimensionless constant. The existence of the constantExpand
A review of Hardy inequalities
We review the literature concerning the Hardy inequality for regions in Euclidean space and in manifolds, concentrating on the best constants. We also give applications of these inequalities toExpand
An improved Poincaré inequality
We show that a large class of domains D in R n including John domains satisfies the improved Poincare inequality ∥u(x) − u D ∥ Lq(D) ≤ c∥⊇u(x)d(x, ∂D) δ ∥ Lp(D) where p ≤ q ≤ np/n−p(1−δ), p(1 − δ) <Expand
On the Inequalities of Babuška–Aziz, Friedrichs and Horgan–Payne
The equivalence between the inequalities of Babuška–Aziz and Friedrichs for sufficiently smooth bounded domains in the plane was shown by Horgan and Payne 30 years ago. We prove that thisExpand
On Bogovskiĭ and regularized Poincaré integral operators for de Rham complexes on Lipschitz domains
We study integral operators related to a regularized version of the classical Poincaré path integral and the adjoint class generalizing Bogovskiĭ’s integral operator, acting on differential forms inExpand
On inequalities of Korn, Friedrichs and Babuška-Aziz
KORN'S inequalities for integrals of quadratic functionals subject to certain side conditions have played a fundamental role in the development of elasticity theory (see e.g. [I-14]). The KornExpand
An elementary proof of the continuity from L20(Ω) to H10(Ω)n of Bogovskii’s right inverse of the divergence
The existence of right inverses of the divergence as an operator from H10(Ω)n to L20(Ω) is a problem that has been widely studied because of its importance in the analysis of the classic equations ofExpand
Weighted Poincaré inequalities on convex domains
Let Ω be a bounded open convex set in Rn. Suppose that α ≥ 0, β ∈ R, 1 ≤ p ≤ q < ∞, and 1− n p + n q , 1− n + β p + n + α q ≥ 0. Let ρ(x) = dist(x, Ωc) = min{|x − y| : y ∈ Ωc} denote the EuclideanExpand
Solvability of the divergence equation implies John via Poincar\'e inequality
Let $\Omega \subset \rr^2$ be a bounded simply connected domain. We show that, for a fixed (every) $p\in (1,\fz),$ the divergence equation $\mathrm{div}\,\mathbf{v}=f$ is solvable inExpand
