Abstract: In this paper we consider a class of Monge-Ampere equations with a prescribed contact angle boundary value problem on a bounded strictly convex domain in two dimensions. The purpose is to give a sharp necessary condition of solvability for the above mentioned equations. This is achieved by using the maximum principle and introducing a curvilinear coordinate system for Monge-Ampere equations in two dimensions. An interesting feature of our necessary condition is the need for a certain strong restriction between the curvature of the boundary of domain and the boundary condition, which does not appear in the Dirichlet and Neumann boundary values.
