Abstract

Let $\Omega\subseteq\mathbb{R}^2$ be a domain and let $f\in W^{1,1}(\Omega,\mathbb{R}^2)$ be a homeomorphism (between $\Omega$ and $f(\Omega)$). Then there exists a sequence of smooth diffeomorphisms $f_k$ converging to $f$ in $W^{1,1}(\Omega,\mathbb{R}^2)$ and uniformly. This is a joint result with A. Pratelli.
