abstract (eng):

We characterize lower semicontinuity of integral functionals with respect to weak* convergence in BV, including integrands whose negative part has linear growth. In addition, we allow for sequences without a fixed trace at the boundary. In this case, both the integrand and the shape of the boundary play a key role. This is made precise in our newly found condition – quasi-sublinear growth from below at points of the boundary – which compensates for possible concentration effects generated by the sequence.
