Real-valued valuations on Sobolev spaces



Continuous, SL(n) and translation invariant real-valued valuations on Sobolev spaces are classified. The centro-affine Hadwiger’s theorem is applied. In the homogeneous case, these valuations turn out to be L p -norms raised to p-th power (up to suitable multipication scales).
