Abstract:

We consider functionals of the type $$\int f(Du) +a(x)u$$ defined on vector values functions $u:\Omega \to R^N$, where $f$ satisfies growth conditions of $(p,q)$ type: $$L{-1} z p \leq f(z) \leq L(1+ z q).$$ Moreover $f$ is convex and satisfies the natural growth and ellipticity assumptions on the matrix $D^2f$. We prove local $W^{1,q}$ regularity of minimizers provided $$qp < (n+2)n$$ where $\Omega \subset R^n$. A higher differentiability result is also given.
