  journal={arXiv: Metric Geometry},
In arbitrary Carnot groups we study intrinsic graphs of maps with horizontal target. These graphs are $C^1_H$ regular exactly when the map is uniformly intrinsically differentiable. Our first main result characterizes the uniformly intrinsic differentiability by means of Holder properties along the projections of left-invariant vector fields on the graph. We strengthen the result in step-2 Carnot groups for intrinsic real-valued maps by only requiring horizontal regularity. We remark that such… Expand
On rectifiable measures in Carnot groups: representation
This paper deals with the theory of rectifiability in arbitrary Carnot groups, and in particular with the study of the notion of P-rectifiable measure. First, we show that in arbitrary Carnot groupsExpand
Lipschitz graphs and currents in Heisenberg groups
