Lp Polyharmonic Dirichlet Problems in the Upper Half Plane


In this article, a class of Dirichlet problem with Lp boundary data for poly-harmonic function in the upper half plane is mainly investigated. By introducing a sequence of kernel functions called higher order Poisson kernels and a hierarchy of integral operators called higher order Pompeiu operators, we obtain a main result on integral representation solution as well as the uniqueness of the polyharmonic Dirichlet problem under a certain estimate.
