Title: Local invertibility in Sobolev spaces

Abstract: We define a class of Sobolev deformations that are orientation-preserving and suitable for models in nonlinear elasticity. We show an inverse function theorem for this class. We give applications to existence results in variational models in Mechanics with low coercivity whose energy involves both the reference and deformed configurations, like liquid crystal elastomers and magnetoelasticity.

Joint work with M. Barchiesi and D. Henao.
