Minimal lipschitz extension

Abstract : The thesis is concerned to some mathematical problems on minimal Lipschitz extensions. Chapter 1: We introduce some basic background about minimal Lipschitz extension (MLE) problems. Chapter 2: We study the relationship between the Lipschitz constant of 1-field and the Lipschitz constant of the gradient associated with this 1-field. We produce two Sup-Inf explicit formulas which are two extremal minimal Lipschitz extensions for 1-fields. We explain how to use the Sup-Inf explicit minimal Lipschitz extensions for 1-fields to construct minimal Lipschitz extension of mappings from Rm to Rn. Moreover, we show that Wells’s extensions of 1-fields are absolutely minimal Lipschitz extensions (AMLE) when the domain of 1-field to expand is finite. We provide a counter-example showing that this result is false in general. Chapter 3: We study the discrete version of the existence and uniqueness of AMLE. We prove that the tight function introduced by Sheffield and Smart is a Kirszbraun extension. In the realvalued case, we prove that the Kirszbraun extension is unique. Moreover, we produce a simple algorithm which calculates efficiently the value of the Kirszbraun extension in polynomial time. Chapter 4: We describe some problems for future research, which are related to the subject represented in the thesis.
