Beltrami equations with coefficient in the Sobolev space W1,p

A. Clop, D. Faraco, J. Mateu, J. Orobitg, X. Zhong


We study the removable singularities for solutions to the Beltrami equation Əƒ = μ Əƒ, where μ is a bounded function, ||μ|| ∞ ≤ k-1/k+1 < 1, and such that μ ∈ W1,p for some p ≤ 2. Our results are based on an extended version of the well known Weyl’s lemma, asserting that distributional solutions are actually true solutions. Our main result is that quasiconformal mappings with compactly supported Beltrami coefficient μ ∈ W1,p, 2k2/k2+1 < p ≤ 2, preserve compact sets of σ-finite length and vanishing analytic capacity, even though they need not be bilipschitz.
