Abstract

We prove a regularity result for the Poisson problem - Δ u = f, u |∂ P = g on a polyhedral domain P ⊂ R3 using the Babuška-Kondratiev spaces Kam (P). These are weighted Sobolev spaces in which the weight is given by the distance to the set of edges [4,33]. In particular, we show that there is no loss of Kam-regularity for solutions of strongly elliptic systems with smooth coefficients. We also establish a "trace theorem" for the restriction to the boundary of the functions in Kam (P).
