Density of "nice" functions in Sobolev spaces

Derek Jung (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: A Sobolev space consists of integrable functions $f:X\to Y$ with integrable derivative, where $X$ and $Y$ are "sufficiently'' Euclidean manifolds. One can naturally define metrics on these spaces, leading one to ask the following question: Are "nice'' functions dense in a Sobolev space? Here, "nice'' depends on $X$ and $Y$ and may refer to smooth, Lipschitz, etc. In this talk, I will introduce Sobolev spaces between manifolds and discuss my current research of investigating the density of Lipschitz functions in Sobolev spaces of functions from balls to a class of sub-Riemannian manifolds, Jet spaces.
