 Despite its long history, the theory of ellipticpartial differential equations in non-smooth media is abundant with openproblems. We will discuss the main achievements in the theory, recentdevelopments, surprising paradoxes related to the behavior of solutions nearthe boundary, and some fundamental questions which still remain open.
