Extremizing temperature functions of rods with Robin boundary conditions
Keywords:Symmetrization, comparison theorems, Poisson's equation, Robin boundary conditions
AbstractWe compare the solutions of two one-dimensional Poisson problems on an interval with Robin boundary conditions, one with given data, and one where the data has been symmetrized. When the Robin parameter is positive and the symmetrization is symmetric decreasing rearrangement, we prove that the solution to the symmetrized problem has larger increasing convex means. When the Robin parameter equals zero (so that we have Neumann boundary conditions) and the symmetrization is decreasing rearrangement, we similarly show that the solution to the symmetrized problem has larger convex means.
