"Det vs det"



Sharp results for weak convergence of the determinant jacobian are given using a new isoperimetric inequality. It is shown that if $u_n \in W^{1,N}(\Omega;\mathbb{R}^N)$, $u_n \rightharpoonup u$ in $W^{1,N-1}(\Omega;\mathbb{R}^N)$, where $\Omega$ is a bounded, open subset of $\mathbb{R}^N$, and if $\{{\rm det}\, \nabla u_n\}$ converges weakly-* in the sense of measures to a Radon measure $\mu$, then $\frac{d \mu}{d
\mathcal L^N}={\rm det}\, \nabla u$ a.e. in $\Omega$.

This is joint work with Giovanni Leoni and Jan Malý.
