A strengthening of the interior Hölder continuity property for solutions of the Dirichlet problem for a second-order elliptic equation

The classical solution of the Dirichlet problem with a continuous boundary function for a linear elliptic equation with Hölder continuous coefficients and right-hand side satisfies the interior Schauder estimates describing the possible increase of the solution smoothness characteristics as the boundary is approached, namely, of the solution derivatives and their difference ratios in the corresponding Hölder norm. We prove similar assertions for the generalized solution with some other smoothness characteristics. In contrast to the interior Schauder estimates for classical solutions, our established estimates for the differential characteristics imply the continuity of the generalized solution in a sense natural for the problem (in the sense of (n-1)-dimensional continuity) up to the boundary of the domain in question. We state the global properties in terms of the boundedness of the integrals of the square of the difference between the solution values at different points with respect to especially normalized measures in a certain class.
