Rank-(n – 1) convexity and quasiconvexity for divergence free fields

Mariapia Palombaro
From the journal


We prove that rank-(n – 1) convexity does not imply quasiconvexity with respect to divergence free fields (so-called S-quasiconvexity) in for m > n, by adapting the well-known Šverák's counterexample to the solenoidal setting. On the other hand, we also remark that rank-(n – 1) convexity and S-quasiconvexity turn out to be equivalent in the space of n × n diagonal matrices.
