Title

On Second Order Elliptic Equations with a Small Parameter

Abstract

The Neumann problem with a small parameter (Formula presented.) is considered in this paper. The operators L0 and L1 are self-adjoint second order operators. We assume that L0 has a non-negative characteristic form and L1 is strictly elliptic. The reflection is with respect to inward co-normal unit vector γε(x). The behavior of lim ε↓0 uε(x) is effectively described via the solution of an ordinary differential equation on a tree. We calculate the differential operators inside the edges of this tree and the gluing condition at the root. Our approach is based on an analysis of the corresponding diffusion processes.
