Abstract

We prove the strong minimum principle for non-negative quasisuperminimizers of the variable exponent Dirichlet energy integral under the assumption that the exponent has modulus of continuity slightly more general than Lipschitz. The proof is based on a new version of the weak Harnack estimate.

Résumé

Nous prouvons le fort principe du minimum pour des quasisuperminimizeurs non-négatifs de problème de Dirichlet de lʼexposant variable en supposant que lʼexposant a le module de continuité un peu plus général que Lipschitz. La démonstration est fondée sur une nouvelle version de la faible inégalité de Harnack.
