This monograph presents a comprehensive treatment of second order divergence form elliptic operators with bounded measurable $t$-independent coefficients in spaces of fractional smoothness, in Besov and weighted $L^{p}$ classes. We establish:(1) Mapping properties for the double and single layer potentials, as well as the Newton potential; (2) Extrapolation-type solvability results: the fact that solvability of the Dirichlet or Neumann boundary value problem at any given $L^{p}$ space automatically assures their solvability in an extended range of Besov spaces; (3) Well-posedness for the non-homogeneous boundary value problems.In particular, we prove well-posedness of the non-homogeneous Dirichlet problem with data in Besov spaces for operators with real, not necessarily symmetric coefficients.
