Regularity of quasiconvex envelopes

By J. M. Ball, Bernd Kirchheim and Jan Kristensen


We prove that the quasiconvex envelope of a differentiable function which satisfies natural growth conditions at infinity is a $C^1$ function. Without the growth conditions the result fails in general. We also obtain results on higher regularity (in the sense of $C^{1,\alpha}_{\rm loc}$) and similar results for other types of envelopes, including polyconvex and rank-1 convex envelopes
