##### HA8 / Solution of Question 4
« on: March 19, 2015, 09:13:07 PM »
Using Newton shell theorem (see [Section 6 of Lecture 25]) prove that if Earth was a homogeneous solid ball then the gravity pull inside of it would be proportional to the distance to the center.

1.  Using the proof of maximum principle prove the maximum principle for
subharmonic functions and minimum principle for superharmonic
functions.

2.  Show that minimum principle for subharmonic functions and maximum
principle for superharmonic functions do not hold (*Hint*: construct
counterexamples with $f=f(r)$).

3.  Prove that if $u,v,w$ are respectively harmonic, subharmonic and
superharmonic functions in the bounded domain $\Omega$,
coinciding on its boundary ($u|_\Sigma=v|_\Sigma=w|_\Sigma$)
then in $w\ge u \ge v$ in $\Omega$.

SO i just post what i write on paper

Using the proof of mean value theorem prove that if $\Delta u\ge 0$ in $B(y,r)$ then

1.  $u(y)$ does not exceed the mean value of $u$ over the sphere $S(y,r)$ bounding this ball:
\begin{equation}
u(y)\le \frac{1}{\sigma_n r^{n-1}}\int_{S(y,r)} u\,dS.
\label{equ-H8.2}
\end{equation}
2.  $u(y)$ does not exceed the mean value of $u$ over this ball $B(y,r)$:
\begin{equation}
u(y)\le \frac{1}{\omega_n   r^n}\int_{B(y,r)} u\,dV.
\label{equ-H8.3} \end{equation}

3.  Formulate similar statements for functions satisfying $\Delta u\le 0$ (in the next problem we refer to them as (a)' and (b)').

Definition

a.  Functions having property (a) (or (b) does not matter) of the  previous problem are called  subharmoni

b.  Functions having property (a)' (or (b)' does not matter) are called   superharmonic.

Well, so 9 pm is good to post solution right?
