Wiener criterion for a class of degenerate elliptic operators. (English) Zbl 0633.35018
The authors give some geometric criteria (analogous to Wiener’s Poincaré’s and Zaremba’s criteria for the Laplacian) for the regularity of boundary points for the Dirichlet problem relative to a class of partial differential operators of the form \(\sum^{n}_{j=1}X^ 2_ j\), fulfilling Hörmander’s condition.
