A note on the unique continuation property for fully nonlinear elliptic equations

1. 

Department of Mathematics, University of California, Irvine, CA 92697, United States

Received  June 2014 Revised  August 2014 Published  December 2014

We establish the strong unique continuation property for solutions to (1.1) where $F$ satisfies the structural assumptions A)-D). This extends a recent result of Armstrong and Silvestre (see [3]) where $F$ was assumed to be independent of $x$. We also establish an analogous unique continuation result at the boundary along the lines of [1] when the domain is $C^{3, \alpha}$.
