Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

202 Scopus citations


Sobolev spaces of differential forms are studied, Lp-projections onto exact forms are introduced as a tool to obtain integral estimates for null Lagrangians. New results on compensated compactness are given and mean-coercive variational integrals are found. Existence of minima of certain mean-coercive functionals is established.
