We study the regularity of solutions of equations of the form \[ \min(-\Delta u,|Du|−1)=0 \] These arise when computing the optimal strategy for a zero-sum game involving Brownian and constant speed dynamics determined by the agents. In collaboration with Pimentel we established the optimal Lipschitz regularity and the free boundary condition on the interface. Whenever the first agent fixes its strategy the equation becomes a transmission problem between the Laplace and eikonal equation. In different collaboration with Arellano we analyze the well posedness of the problem and the convergence of a numerical method.

Joint work with Edgard Pimentel (Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil) and Arturo Arellano (Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas, Guanajuato, México).
