Obstacle problems are an important class of free-boundary problems. The general setting is the following: Given an unknown pair $(u,\Omega)$ where $u$ solves a ``nice’’ equation inside $\Omega$ and has some behavior across $\partial\Omega$, understand the regularity of both $u$ and $\partial \Omega$. The Signorini problem, also known as the ``lower dimensional obstacle problem’’, is a classical problem in this area. While the regularity of the solution is now well understood, the regularity of the free boundary is a much more challenging questions. In this talk I’ll give an overview of the problem and present some recent results on this topic.
