1. Elliptic equations in divergence form with drifts in $L^2$, to appear in Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. doi, arXiv:2104.01300 [math.AP]

Abstract. We consider the Dirichlet problem for second-order linear elliptic equations in divergence form

$-\mathrm{div} (A\nabla u) + \mathbf{b}\cdot \nabla u +\lambda u = f+\mathrm{div } \mathbf{F}\quad \text{in } \Omega\quad \text{and}\quad u=0\quad \text{on } \partial\Omega$,

in bounded Lipschitz domain $\Omega$ in $\mathbb{R}^2$, where $A:\mathbb{R}^2\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{2^2}$, $\mathbf{b}: \Omega\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^2$, and $\lambda \geq 0$ are given. If $2<p<\infty$ and $A$ has a small mean oscillation in small balls, $\Omega$ has small Lipschitz constant, and $\mathrm{div } A, \mathbf{b}\in L^2(\Omega;\mathbb{R}^2)$, then we prove existence and uniqueness of weak solutions in $W_0^{1,p}(\Omega)$ of the problem. Similar result also holds for the dual problem.

2. Existence and uniqueness of weak solution in $W^{1,2+\varepsilon}$ for elliptic equations with drifts in weak-$L^{n}$ spaces, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 500(1) (2021) 125165, [Journal], arXiv:2011.07524 [math.AP]

Abstract. We consider the following Dirichlet problems for elliptic equations with singular drift $\mathbf{b}$:

$\text{(a)}\, −\mathrm{div}(A\nabla u)+\mathrm{div}(u\mathbf{b})=f,\qquad\text{(b)}\, −\mathrm{div}(A^T\nabla v)−\mathbf{b}\cdot\nabla v=g\quad \text{in } \Omega,$

where $\Omega$ is a bounded Lipschitz domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$, $n\geq 2$. Assuming that $\mathbf{b}\in L^{n,\infty}(\Omega)^n$ has non-negative weak divergence in $\Omega$, we establish existence and uniqueness of weak solution in $W^{1,2+\varepsilon}_0(\Omega)$ of the problem (b) when $A$ is bounded and uniformly elliptic. As an application, we prove unique solvability of weak solution $u$ in $W^{1,2-}_0(\Omega)$ for the problem (a) for every $f\in W^{-1,2-}(\Omega)$.

3. Dirichlet and Neumann problems for elliptic equations with singular drifts on Lipschitz domain, with H. Kim, arXiv:1811.12619 [math.AP]

Abstract. We consider the Dirichlet and Neumann problems for second-order linear elliptic equations:

$−\triangle u+\mathrm{div}(u\mathbf{b})=f\quad \text{and}\quad −\triangle v−\mathbf{b}\cdot\nabla v=g$

in a bounded Lipschitz domain $\Omega$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ ($n\geq 3$), where $\mathbf{b}:\Omega\rightarrow \mathbb{R}^n$ is a given vector field. Under the assumption that $\mathbf{b}\in L^n(\Omega)^n$, we first establish existence and uniqueness of solutions in $L^p_{\alpha}(\Omega)$ for the Dirichlet and Neumann problems. Here $L^p_{\alpha}(\Omega)$ denotes the Sobolev space (or Bessel potential space) with the pair $(\alpha,p)$ satisfying certain conditions. These results extend the classical works of Jerison-Kenig (1995) and Fabes-Mendez-Mitrea (1998) for the Poisson equation. We also prove existence and uniqueness of solutions of the Dirichlet problem with boundary data in $L^2(\partial\Omega)$. Our results for the Dirichlet problems hold even for the case $n=2$.
