Abstract:

We consider the integral functional $\int f(x,Du)\,dx$ under non standard growth assumptions that we call of $p(x)$ type: namely, we assume that $$z {p(x)}\le f(x,z)\le L(1+ z {p(x)})\;,$$ a relevant model case being the functional $$\int Du {p(x)}\,dx\;.$$ Under sharp assumptions on the continuous function $p(x)>1$ we prove regularity of minimizers. Energies exhibiting this growth appear in several models from mathematical physics.
