Quantitative estimates on Jacobians for hybrid inverse problems. (English) Zbl 1341.31005
Summary: We consider \(\sigma\)-harmonic mappings, that is mappings \(U\) whose components \(u_i\) solve a divergence structure elliptic equation \(\mathrm{div}(\sigma\nabla u_i)=0\), for \(i=1,\ldots, n\). We investigate whether, with suitably prescribed Dirichlet data, the Jacobian determinant can be bounded away from zero. Results of this sort are required in the treatment of the so-called hybrid inverse problems, and also in the field of homogenization studying bounds for the effective properties of composite materials.
