n-Harmonic Mappings Between Annuli: The Art of Integrating Free Lagrangians (Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society)

The valuable subject of this paper is the variational research of homeomorphisms $h: {\mathbb X} \overset{\textnormal{\tiny{onto}}}{\longrightarrow} {\mathbb Y}$ among given domain names ${\mathbb X}, {\mathbb Y} \subset {\mathbb R}^n$. The authors search for the extremal mappings within the Sobolev house ${\mathscr W}^{1,n}({\mathbb X},{\mathbb Y})$ which reduce the power critical ${\mathscr E}_h=\int_{{\mathbb X}} \,|\!
