We consider the problem of minimizing variational integrals defined on nonlinear Sobolev spaces of competitors taking values into the sphere. The main novelty is that the underlying energy features a non-uniformly elliptic integrand exhibiting different polynomial growth conditions and no homogeneity. We develop a few intrinsic methods aimed at proving partial regularity of minima and providing techniques for treating larger classes of similar constrained non-uniformly elliptic variational problems. To give estimates for the singular sets, we use a general family of Hausdorff type measures following the local geometry of the integrand. A suitable comparison is provided with respect to the naturally associated capacities.

Abstract

We consider the problem of minimizing variational integrals defined on nonlinear Sobolev spaces of competitors taking values into the sphere. The main novelty is that the underlying energy features a non-uniformly elliptic integrand exhibiting different polynomial growth conditions and no homogeneity. We develop a few intrinsic methods aimed at proving partial regularity of minima and providing techniques for treating larger classes of similar constrained non-uniformly elliptic variational problems. To give estimates for the singular sets, we use a general family of Hausdorff type measures following the local geometry of the integrand. A suitable comparison is provided with respect to the naturally associated capacities.
