Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


Variational integrals whose absolute minima are conformal deformations are studied. Polyconvexity and mean coercivity of these functionals are proved in even dimensions. Existence of nearly conformal deformations is established.
