Let tex2html_wrap_inline19 be a starshaped domain. In this note we consider critical points tex2html_wrap_inline21 of the functional
where tex2html_wrap_inline25 of class tex2html_wrap_inline27, is suitably rank-one convex, and in addition strictly quasiconvex at tex2html_wrap_inline29. We establish uniqueness results under the extra assumption that tex2html_wrap_inline31 is stationary at tex2html_wrap_inline33 with respect to variations of the domain. These results should be compared to the ones by Knops and Stuart and recent counterexamples produced by Müller and Sverak.
