Abstract:
We discuss a general approach to construct Lipschitz solutions of tex2html_wrap_inline9, where tex2html_wrap_inline11 and where K is a given set of tex2html_wrap_inline15 matrices. The approach is an extension of Gromov's method of convex integration. One application concerns variational problems that arise in models of microstructure in solid-solid phase transitions. Another application is the systematic construction of singular solutions of elliptic systems. In particular, there exists a tex2html_wrap_inline17 (variational) second order strongly elliptic system tex2html_wrap_inline19 that admits a Lipschitz solution which is nowhere tex2html_wrap_inline21.
