Double layers arise naturally in connection with boundary value problems (BVPs) for second order elliptic operators with datum in Lebesgue spaces on the boundary of the domain in questions. In fact, the solvability of the Dirichlet and Neumann problems hinge on the ability of inverting an operator of the type \(\frac{1}{2}I+T\) on \(L^p\), where \(T\) is of double layer type.
The first part of the talk will be focused on the key tool for inventing such operators in \(L^2\), namely Rellich type identities/estimates. Concretely, we shall show the equivalency of the \(L^2\) norms for the tangential gradient and the normal derivative of a harmonic function in a Lipschitz domain, whose gradients a square integrable non-tangential maximal function. In the context of Lipschitz domains, Rellich estimates have been used first by B. Verchota in his Ph.D. thesis to treat BVPs for the Laplacian.

In this introductory talk, we will learn about CAT(0) cube complexes, cumulation, and random groups. This should be accessible to a first year graduate student.
