Uniqueness in Rough Almost Complex Structures, and Differential Inequalities
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 60 (2010) no. 6, p. 2261-2273

The study of $J$-holomorphic maps leads to the consideration of the inequations $|\frac{\partial u}{\partial \overline{z}}|\le C|u|$, and $|\frac{\partial u}{\partial \overline{z}}|\le ϵ|\frac{\partial u}{\partial z}|$. The first inequation is fairly easy to use. The second one, that is relevant to the case of rough structures, is more delicate. The case of $u$ vector valued is strikingly different from the scalar valued case. Unique continuation and isolated zeroes are the main topics under study. One of the results is that, in almost complex structures of Hölder class $\frac{1}{2}$, any $J$-holomorphic curve that is constant on a non-empty open set, is constant. This is in contrast with immediate examples of non-uniqueness.

L’étude des applications $J$-holomorphes conduit à l’étude des inéquations $|\frac{\partial u}{\partial \overline{z}}|\le C|u|$, et $|\frac{\partial u}{\partial \overline{z}}|\le ϵ|\frac{\partial u}{\partial z}|$. La première inéquation est facile à utiliser. La seconde, qui intervient naturellement dans les structures non lisses, est plus difficile. De façon intéressante, le cas d’applications vectorielles $u$ est différent du cas scalaire. Les questions étudiées ont trait à l’unicité de prolongement et aux zéros isolés. Parmi les résultats, il est démontré que, pour les structures presque complexes de classe Hölderienne $\frac{1}{2}$, toute courbe $J$-holomorphe constante sur un ouvert non vide, est constante. Ceci est en contraste avec des exemples immédiats de non-unicité.
