Young Measures

Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


Before we continue our study of integral functionals, we first introduce an abstract, yet very versatile, tool, the Young measure, named after its inventor Laurence C. Young. Young measures pervade much of the modern theory of the calculus of variations and will be used throughout the remainder of the book. In the next chapter, we will see their first use in the proof of the lower semicontinuity theorem for integral functionals with quasiconvex integrands.
