Abstract:
We answer a question by Kewei Zhang concerning the existence of sets with stable quasiconvex hulls. As a consequence we confirm a conjecture by John M. Ball about the existence of lipschitz maps using finitely many gradients without any rank-one connection. These functions are obtained using a new argument which unifies the convex integration method and the present Baire category approach to the existence of solutions of partial differential inclusions.
