Some minimization problems in the class of convex functions with prescribed determinant

Nam Q. Le and Ovidiu Savin

Vol. 6 (2013), No. 5, 1025–1050
Abstract

We consider minimizers of linear functionals of the type

L(u) =Ωudσ Ωudx

in the class of convex functions u with prescribed determinant detD2u = f.

We obtain compactness properties for such minimizers and discuss their regularity in two dimensions.

Keywords
boundary regularity, convex minimizer, fourth-order elliptic equation, prescribed determinant
