We define $$\phi(x,r)=\frac{1}{n\alpha(n)}\int_{\partial B(0,1)}f(x+rz)dS(z)$$ where $\alpha(n)$ is the volume of $B(0,1)$. I calculated $$\partial_r\phi=\frac{r}{n\alpha(n)} \int_{\partial B(0,1)}\Delta_xf(x+rz)dS(z)$$ Please help me to show that $$\partial_{rr}\phi-\frac{n-1}{r}\partial_r\phi=\Delta_x\phi$$ Thanks.

It's nice to be promoted. Last edited by skipjack; October 9th, 2018 at 12:53 PM.

Of course people are going to ask HW questions. If you don't know the answer don't reply.
