I am presenting a survey of regularity results for both minima of variational integrals, and solutions to non-linear elliptic, and sometimes parabolic, systems of partial differential equations. I will try to take the reader to the Dark Side... 
Partial Regularity for Symmetric-Convex Functionals of Linear Growth
We establish partial regularity of BD-minima for variational integrals of linear growth which depend on the symmetric gradients and satisfy a weak ellipticity condition. Since there is no KornExpand
