Abstract [en]

A. Baernstein II (Comparison of p-harmonic measures of subsets of the unit circle, St. Petersburg Math. J. 9 (1998), 543-551, p. 548), posed the following question: If G is a union of m open arcs on the boundary of the unit disc D, then is w a,p(G)=w a,p(G), where w a,p denotes the p-harmonic measure? (Strictly speaking he stated this question for the case m=2.) For p=2 the positive answer to this question is well known. Recall that for p≠2 the p-harmonic measure, being a nonlinear analogue of the harmonic measure, is not a measure in the usual sense.

The purpose of this note is to answer a more general version of Baernstein's question in the affirmative when 1G is the restriction to ∂D of a Sobolev function from W 1,p(C).

For p≥2 it is no longer true that XG belongs to the trace class. Nevertheless, we are able to show equality for the case m=1 of one arc for all 1, using a very elementary argument. A similar argument is used to obtain a result for starshaped domains.

Finally we show that in a certain sense the equality holds for almost all relatively open sets.
