Height estimate and slicing formulas in the Heisenberg group

Roberto Monti and Davide Vittone

Vol. 8 (2015), No. 6, 1421–1454
DOI: 10.2140/apde.2015.8.1421
Abstract

We prove a height estimate (distance from the tangent hyperplane) for Λ-minimizers of the perimeter in the sub-Riemannian Heisenberg group. The estimate is in terms of a power of the excess (L2-mean oscillation of the normal) and its proof is based on a new coarea formula for rectifiable sets in the Heisenberg group.
