Abstract:

In this paper we show that the flow associated to Sobolev vectorfields, given by the DiPerna-Lions theory, has a kind of Lipschitz regularity property typical of functions in Sobolev spaces: for any $\delta>0$ one can disregard a set of initial points with measure less than $\delta$ to find a Lipschitz flow in the complement in this set. The proof is achieved by introducing suitable averaged difference quotients of the flow and by estimating carefully the right hand side in the transport equations satisfied by them.
