  • Partial regularity of suitable weak solutions of the navier‐stokes equations (1252 citations)
  • Fully Nonlinear Elliptic Equations (1104 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Luis A. Caffarelli mainly focuses on Mathematical analysis, Boundary, Nonlinear system, Pure mathematics and Free boundary problem. His research related to Partial differential equation, Boundary value problem, Lipschitz continuity, Differential equation and Elliptic curve might be considered part of Mathematical analysis. His Boundary study incorporates themes from Harmonic function, Class, Type and Monotonic function.

Luis A. Caffarelli has researched Nonlinear system in several fields, including Applied mathematics, Harnack's inequality and Regular polygon. His study in Bounded function extends to Pure mathematics with its themes. His Free boundary problem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stefan problem and Mixed boundary condition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical analysis (63.93%)
  • Boundary (23.50%)
  • Nonlinear system (15.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mathematical analysis (63.93%)
  • Boundary (23.50%)
  • Pure mathematics (13.66%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Mathematical analysis, Boundary, Pure mathematics, Nonlinear system and Space. The concepts of his Mathematical analysis study are interwoven with issues in Structure, Plane and Regular polygon. In the subject of general Boundary, his work in Free boundary problem and Obstacle problem is often linked to Membrane, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His Pure mathematics research incorporates themes from Class and Uniqueness. Luis A. Caffarelli focuses mostly in the field of Nonlinear system, narrowing it down to matters related to Alpha and, in some cases, Omega, Plasma and Toroid. As a part of the same scientific study, Luis A. Caffarelli usually deals with the Harnack's inequality, concentrating on Differential equation and frequently concerns with Monge–Ampère equation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Obstacle problems for integro-differential operators: regularity of solutions and free boundaries (54 citations)
  • Porous medium flow with both a fractional potential pressure and fractional time derivative (35 citations)
  • On the regularity of the non-dynamic parabolic fractional obstacle problem (18 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Mathematical analysis
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Geometry

His primary areas of study are Boundary, Mathematical analysis, Pure mathematics, Obstacle problem and Hölder condition. His Boundary research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Type and Combinatorics. His research in Mathematical analysis intersects with topics in Work, Elliptic systems and Scaling.

His Pure mathematics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Minification, Euler equations, Term, Class and Bounded function. His studies deal with areas such as Characterization, Viscosity solution, Special case and Regular polygon as well as Obstacle problem. The various areas that Luis A.
