Title: Mean value properties: old and new

Abstract: A classical result states that harmonic functions are characterized by the mean value property over balls or over spheres. In this lecture we explore analogues of this result for p-harmonic functions, solution of the p-Laplace equation, where the exponent p is finite, p >1. We characterize p-harmonic functions by using asymptotic mean value properties, extending several classical results from the linear case p=2 to other p's.

I will mention results jointly obtained with Fausto Ferrari (Bologna), Bernd Kawohl (Cologne), Qing Liu (Pittsburgh), Adam Oberman (Montreal), Mikko Parviainen (Helsinki), Julio Rossi (Alicante), and Alexander Sviridov (Nashville).
