Integral approach to sensitive singular perturbations

Abstract : We consider singular perturbation elliptic problems depending on a parameter ε such that, for ε = 0 the boundary conditions are not adapted to the equation (they do not satisfy the Shapiro - Lopatinskii condition). The limit only holds in very abstract spaces out of distribution theory involving complexification and non-local phenomena. We give a very elementary model problem showing the main features of the limit process, as well as a heuristic integral procedure for obtain- ing a description of the solutions for small ε. Such kind of problems appear in thin shell theory when the middle surface is elliptic and the shell is fixed by a part of the boundary and free by the rest.
