Lower semicontinuity and Young measures in BV without Alberti's Rank-One Theorem

Filip Rindler
Published Online: 2012-03-26 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/acv.2011.008


We give a new proof of sequential weak* lower semicontinuity in for integral functionals of the form

where and is a quasiconvex Carathéodory integrand with linear growth at infinity, i.e. for some , and such that the recession function exists and is (jointly) continuous. In contrast to the classical proofs by Ambrosio and Dal Maso [J. Funct. Anal. 109 (1992), 76–97] and Fonseca and Müller [Arch. Ration. Mech. Anal. 123 (1993), 1–49], we do not use Alberti's Rank-One Theorem [Proc. Roy. Soc. Edinburgh Sect. A 123 (1993), 239–274], but a rigidity result for gradients. The proof is set in the framework of generalized Young measures and proceeds via establishing Jensen-type inequalities for regular and singular points of .
