The inequality is listed in line 10 on page 29: $$\parallel \frac{\partial p}{\partial x_{k}} \parallel_{L^{2}(G_{R^{"}})} \leq c \parallel\nabla \frac{\partial p}{\partial x_{k}} \parallel_{H^{-1}(G_{R})}.$$ First I would like to know how $\nabla \partial p / \partial x_{k}$ is defined as a functional in $H^{1}_{0}$. Secondly the proof of the inequality. Thanks in advance.
