Higher order weighted Sobolev spaces on the real line for strongly degenerate weights. Application to variational problems in elasticity of beams

Karol Bołbotowski


For one-dimensional interval and integrable weight function w we define via completion a weighted Sobolev space Hμw m,p of arbitrary integer order m. The weights in consideration may suffer strong degeneration so that, in general, functions u from Hμw m,p do not have weak derivatives. This contribution is focussed on studying the continuity properties of functions u at a chosen internal point x0 to which we attribute a notion of criticality of order k and with respect to the weight w. For non-critical points x0 we formulate a local embedding result that guarantees continuity of functions u or their derivatives. Conversely, we employ duality theory to show that criticality of x0 furnishes a smooth approximation of functions in Hμw m,p admitting jump-type discontinuities at x0. The work concludes with demonstration of established results in the context of variational problem in elasticity theory of beams with degenerate width distribution.
