An elliptic inequality for nonlinear Hodge fields
A version of the nonlinear Hodge equations is introduced in which the irrotationality condition is weakened. An elliptic estimate for solutions is derived.
Uniformly and nonuniformly elliptic variational equations with gauge invariance
A large class of variational equations for geometric objects is studied. The results imply conformal monotonicity and Liouville theorems for steady, polytropic, ideal flow, and the regularity of weak
Nonlinear Hodge maps
We consider maps between Riemannian manifolds in which the map is a stationary point of the nonlinear Hodge energy. The variational equations of this functional form a quasilinear, nondiagonal,

Connections withLP bounds on curvature
We show by means of the implicit function theorem that Coulomb gauges exist for fields over a ball inRn when the integralLn/2 field norm is sufficiently small. We then are able to prove a weak
Classification of singular Sobolev connections by their holonomy
For a connection on a principalSU(2) bundle over a base space with a codimension two singular set, a limit holonomy condition is stated. In dimension four, finite action implies that the condition is
Removable singularities in Yang-Mills fields
We show that a field satisfying the Yang-Mills equations in dimension 4 with a point singularity is gauge equivalent to a smooth field if the functional is finite. We obtain the result that every
