MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Rank-one convexity implies quasiconvexity on certain hypersurfaces

Nirmalendu Chaudhuri and Stefan Müller


We show that, if $f : \Bbb M^{2\times 2}\longrightarrow \Bbb R$ is rank-1 convex on the hyperboloid $$H^{-}_{D}:=\left\{X\in S^{2\times 2}\, : \, \text{det}\,X=-D, X_{11}\geq c>0\right\}, D\geq 0, S^{2\times 2}$$ is the set of $2\times2$ real symmetric matrices, then $f$ can be approximated by quasiconvex functions on $\Bbb M^{2\times 2}$ uniformly on compact subsets of $H^{-}_{D}$. Equivalently, every gradient Young measure supported on a compact subset of $H^{-}_{D}$ is a laminate.
