We establish a new energy inequality for the difference of two semiconvex functions in a bounded open convex set D of Rn. This inequality is applied to the L2-approximation problem of the gradient of the unknown solution of the nonlinear elliptic partial differential equation provided that the latter solution is a semiconvex function in D.
Keywords: Semiconvex and semiconcave functions, energy inequality, L-2-approximation, gradient of semiconvex function, convex envelope.
