Abstract

Let Ω be a domain in ℝn, where n = 2, 3. Suppose that a sequence of Sobolev homeomorphisms fk : Ω → ℝn with positive Jacobian determinants, J(x, fk) > 0, converges weakly in W1,p(Ω, ℝn), for some p ≥ 1, to a mapping f. We show that J(x, f) ≥ 0 a.e. in Ω. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also given.
