In this paper we prove the optimal -regularity for a general obstacle-type problem
under the assumption that is , where N is the Newtonian potential. This is the weakest assumption for which one can hope to get -regularity. As a by-product of the -regularity we are able to prove that, under a standard thickness assumption on the zero set close to a free boundary point , the free boundary is locally a -graph close to provided f is Dini. This completely settles the question of the optimal regularity of this problem, which has been the focus of much attention during the last two decades. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
