Some nonlinear differential inequalities and an application to Hölder continuous almost complex structures. (English) Zbl 1213.35409
Summary: We consider some second order quasilinear partial differential inequalities for real-valued functions on the unit ball and find conditions under which there is a lower bound for the supremum of nonnegative solutions that do not vanish at the origin. As a consequence, for complex-valued functions \(f(z)\) satisfying \(\partial f/\partial \bar z = |f|^{\alpha}, 0<\alpha <1\), and \(f(0)\neq 0\), there is also a lower bound for \(\sup|f|\) on the unit disk. For each \(\alpha \), we construct a manifold with an \(\alpha \)-Hölder continuous almost complex structure where the Kobayashi-Royden pseudonorm is not upper semicontinuous.
