Hardy inequality and Pohozaev identity for operators with boundary singularities: Some applications
We consider the Schrödinger operator Aλ:=-δ-λ/|x|2, λ∈R, when the singularity is located on the boundary of a smooth domain Ω⊂RN, N≥1.The aim of this Note is two folded. Firstly, we justify the extension of the classical Pohozaev identity for the Laplacian to this case. The problem we address is very much related to Hardy-Poincaré inequalities with boundary singularities. Secondly, the new Pohozaev identity allows us to develop the multiplier method for the wave and the Schrödinger equations. In this way we extend to the case of boundary singularities well known observability and control properties for the classical wave and Schrödinger equations when the singularity is placed in the interior of the domain (Vancostenoble and Zuazua (2009) ).
