A fundamental problem in differential geometry is to characterize intrinsic metrics on a two-dimensional Riemannian manifold M2 which can be realized as isometric immersions into R3. This problem can be formulated as initial and/or boundary value problems for a system of nonlinear partial differential equations of mixed elliptichyperbolic type whose mathematical theory is largely incomplete. In this paper, we develop a general approach, which combines a fluid dynamic formulation of balance laws for the Gauss-Codazzi system with a compensated compactness framework, to deal with the initial and/or boundary value problems for isometric immersions in R3. The compensated compactness framework formed here is a natural formulation to ensure the weak continuity of the Gauss-Codazzi system for approximate solutions, which yields the isometric realization of two-dimensional surfaces in R3. As a first application of this approach, we study the isometric immersion problem for two-dimensional Riemannian manifolds with strictly negative Gauss curvature. We prove that there exists a C1,1 isometric immersion of the two-dimensional manifold in R3 satisfying our prescribed initial conditions. To achieve this, we introduce a vanishing viscosity method depending on the features of initial value problems for isometric immersions and present a technique to make the apriori estimates including the L∞ control and H?1?compactness for the viscous approximate solutions. This yields the weak convergence of the vanishing viscosity approximate solutions and the weak continuity of the Gauss-Codazzi system for the approximate solutions, hence the existence of an isometric immersion of the manifold into R3 satisfying our initial conditions.

곡선은 방정식, 매개화된 곡선의 동치류, 모듈 등의 다양한 관점에서 정의될 수 있다. 미끈한 곡선의 경우는 모든 정의들이 본질적으로 동등하지만 이들의 극한을 취하면 관점에 따라 완전히 다른 답들이 얻어진다. 따라서 미끈한 곡선들의 집합은 관점에 따라...
