Motivated by some questions in continuum mechanics and analysis in metric spaces, we give an intrinsic characterization of sequentially weak lower semicontinuous functionals deļ¬ned on Sobolev maps with values into manifolds without embedding the target into Euclidean spaces.

Keywords: Lower semicontinuity, Quasi convexity, Manifold constraints, Metric space valued
