The present paper establishes a certain duality between the Dirichlet and Regularity problems for elliptic operators with $$t$$t-independent complex bounded measurable coefficients ($$t$$t being the transversal direction to the boundary). To be precise, we show that the Dirichlet boundary value problem is solvable in $$L^{p'}$$Lp′, subject to the square function and non-tangential maximal function estimates, if and only if the corresponding Regularity problem is solvable in $$L^p$$Lp.

Boundary value problems for second-order elliptic operators with complex coefficients
The theory of second order complex coefficient operators of the form $\mathcal{L}=\mbox{div} A(x)\nabla$ has recently been developed under the assumption of $p$-ellipticity. In particular, if the
