    Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society
    Volume: 2112011; 79 pp
    MSC: Primary 49; 35; 54; 53;

    In this memoir the authors revisit Almgren's theory of \(Q\)-valued functions, which are functions taking values in the space \(\mathcal{A}_Q(\mathbb{R}^{n})\) of unordered \(Q\)-tuples of points in \(\mathbb{R}^{n}\).

    In particular, the authors:

    • give shorter versions of Almgren's proofs of the existence of \(\mathrm{Dir}\)-minimizing \(Q\)-valued functions, of their Hölder regularity, and of the dimension estimate of their singular set;
    • propose an alternative, intrinsic approach to these results, not relying on Almgren's biLipschitz embedding \(\xi: \mathcal{A}_Q(\mathbb{R}^{n})\to\mathbb{R}^{N(Q,n)}\);
    • improve upon the estimate of the singular set of planar \(\mathrm{D}\)-minimizing functions by showing that it consists of isolated points.
