Revised: 26 June 2005
We study a variational problem which was introduced by Hannon, Marcus and Mizel [ESAIM: COCV 9 (2003) 145–149] to describe step-terraces on surfaces of so-called “unorthodox” crystals. We show that there is no nondegenerate intervals on which the absolute value of a minimizer is identically.
Mathematics Subject Classification: 49J99 / 74E15
Key words: Minimizer / surfaces of crystals / unorthodox crystal / variational problem.
