On the Behavior of the Derivatives of Minimizers near Singular Points

  • Enrico Giusti


In spite of its relevance to the calculus of variations, the regularity of minimizers of variational integrals as such (i.e. as opposed to stationary points) has been studied only recently in [2]. Since then, several papers dedicated to the study of that problem have appeared.
