© 2019 Elsevier Inc. In this article, we study the order of vanishing and a quantitative form of Landis' conjecture in the plane for solutions to second-order elliptic equations with variable coefficients and singular lower order terms. Precisely, we let A be real-valued, bounded and elliptic, but not necessary symmetric or continuous, and we assume that V and Wi are real-valued and belong to Lp and Lqi, respectively. We prove that if u is a real-valued, bounded and normalized solution to an equation of the form −div(A∇u+W1u)+W2⋅∇u+Vu=0 in Bd, then under suitable conditions on the lower order terms, for any r sufficiently small, the following order of vanishing estimate holds ||u||L∞(Br)≥rCM, where M depends on the Lebesgue norms of the lower order terms. In a number of settings, a scaling argument gives rise to a quantitative form of Landis' conjecture, inf|z0|=R||u||L∞(B1(z0))≥exp(−CRβlogR), where β depends on p, q1, and q2. The integrability assumptions that we impose on V and Wi are nearly optimal in view of a scaling argument. We use the theory of elliptic boundary value problems to establish the existence of positive multipliers associated to the elliptic equation. Then the proofs rely on transforming the equations to Beltrami systems and applying a generalization of Hadamard's three-circle theorem.
