N2 - For the two-phase membrane problem
\Delta u=\lambda_{+}\chi_{\{u>0\}}-\lambda_{-}\chi_{\{u<0\}},
where \lambda_{+} and \lambda_{-} are positive Lipschitz functions, we prove in higher dimensions that the free boundary is in a neighborhood of each "branch point'; the union of two C^{1}-graphs. The result is optimal in the sense that these graphs are in general not of class C^{1,\mbox{Dini}}, as shown by a counter-example.
As application we obtain a stability result with respect to perturbations of the boundary data.
