@article{David2019RegularityFA, title={Regularity for almost-minimizers of variable coefficient Bernoulli-type functionals}, author={Guy David and Max Engelstein and Mariana Smit Vega Garcia and Tatiana Toro}, journal={Mathematische Zeitschrift}, year={2019}, volume={299}, pages={2131 - 2169} }

In David et al. (Adv Math 350:1109–1192, 2019) and David and Toro (Regularity of almost minimizers with free boundary. Calculus of variations and PDEs, 2020), the authors studied almost minimizers for functionals of the type first studied by Alt and Caffarelli (J Reine Angew Math 325:105–144, 1981) and Alt et al. (Trans Am Math Soc 282:431–461, 1984). In this paper we study the regularity of almost minimizers to energy functionals with variable coefficients (as opposed to Alt and Caffarelli, J…
