Abstract:

We prove regularity results for minimizers of functionals $\cF(u,\Omega) := \int_\Omega f(x,u,Du)\, dx$ in the class $K := \{ u \in W^{1,p(x)}(\Omega,\R): u \ge \psi\}$, where $\psi:\Omega \to \R$ is a fixed function and $f$ is quasiconvex and fulfills a growth condition of the type $$L{-1} z {p(x)} \le f(x,\xi,z) \le L(1+ z {p(x)}),$$ with growth exponent $p:\Omega \to (1,\infty)$.
