Abstract

In this paper, we give pointwise geometric conditions on the boundary which guarantee the differentiability of the solution at the boundary. Precisely, the geometric conditions are two parts: the proper blow up condition (see Definition 1) and the exterior Dini hypersurface condition (see Definition 2). If \(\varOmega \) satisfies this two conditions at \(x_0\in \partial \varOmega \), the solution is differentiable at \(x_0\). Furthermore, counterexamples show that the conditions are optimal (see Remark 3 and the counterexample in Section 2).
