Abstract

In this paper, we propose a notion of the local harmonic measure decay
(LHMD) property with exponent $\alpha$ at finite boundary points of
open sets $\Omega$ in the Riemann sphere $\widehat{\mathbb{C}}.$
Using this property, we show that Green's function of $\Omega$
is H\"older continuous with exponent $\alpha$ at such a point as well as the
boundary regularity of the Dirichlet problem in $\Omega$ for the usual Laplacian
at the point in the sense of
H\"older continuity with exponent less than $\alpha.$
We further explain that the LHMD property can be regarded as a localization
of the notion of uniform perfectness for the boundary.
We also provide several applications to the theory of conformal mappings.
