On hypersurfaces inR n+1 with integral bounds on curvature

Abstract

We show that the L p norm of the second fundamental form of hypersurfaces in R n+1 is very coercive in the GMT setting of Gauss graphs currents, when p exceeds the dimension n. A compactness result for immersed hypersurfaces and its application to a variational problem are provided.
