Abstract:

We provide a regular approximation result and an area type formula for intrinsic Lipschitz functions in $\mathbb{H}^n$ endowed with its Carnot-Carathéodory metric structure. Moreover, we characterize intrinsic Lipschitz functions as those maps for which a regular approximation result holds and we provide an estimate of the Lipschitz constant of an intrinsic Lipschitz function in terms of the $L^{\infty}-$norm of its intrinsic gradient.
