Lipschitz extensions into jet space carnot groups

Stefan Wenger, Robert Young

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The aim of this article is to prove a Lipschitz extension theorem for partially defined Lipschitz maps to jet spaces endowed with aleft-invariant sub-Riemannian Carnot-Carathéodory distance. The jet spaces give a model for a certain class of Carnot groups, including in particular all Heisenberg groups. The proofs or our theorems are rather elementary, they are inspired by ideas in papers of Gromov, Young, and Lang-Schlichenmaier.
