Abstract:

We consider weak solutions of second order nonlinear elliptic systems in divergence form under standard subquadratic growth conditions with boundary data of class $C^1$. In dimensions $n \in \{2,3\}$ we prove that $u$ is locally Hölder continuous for every exponent $\lambda \in (0,1-\frac{n-2}{p})$ outside a singular set of Hausdorff dimension less than $n-p$. This result holds up to the boundary both for non-degenerate and degenerate systems. In the proof we apply the direct method and classical Morrey-type estimates introduced by Campanato.
