Compactness results for sequences of approximate biharmonic maps

##### Abstract

We will prove energy quantization for approximate (intrinsic and extrinsic) biharmonic maps into spheres where the approximate map is in $LlogL$. Moreover, we demonstrate that if the $LlogL$ norm of the approximate maps does not concentrate, the images of the bubbles are connected without necks.
