Abstract:
We state and prove a sufficiency theorem for tex2html_wrap_inline9 local minimizers of the functional
displaymath11
where tex2html_wrap_inline13. The exponent r is shown to depend on the dimension n and the growth condition of F and an exact expression is presented for this dependence. We discuss some examples and applications of this theorem.
