Singular minimisers in the Calculus of Variations: a degenerate form of cavitation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper demonstrates the existence of singular minimisers to a class of variational problems that correspond to a degenerate form of cavitation and studies the stability of these singular maps with respect to three dimensional variations.
