The least gradient problem in the plain (English)
[ Abstract ]
The least gradient problem arises in many application, e.g. in the free material design. We show existence of solutions in bounded, strictly convex planar regions, when the data are functions on bounded variation.

Our main goal is to show existence of solution in convex, but not necessarily strictly convex planar regions. In order to avoid technicalities we consider only continuous data, but BV data will do to. We formulate a set of admissibility conditions. We show that they are sufficient for existence.

This is a joint project with Wojciech Górny and Ahmad Sabra.
