Abstract

IIn this paper we make a survey of some recent developments of the theory of Sobolev spaces W-1,W-q (X, d, m), 1 < q < infinity, in metric measure spaces (X, d, m). In the final part of the paper we provide a new proof of the reflexivity of the Sobolev space based on Gamma-convergence; this result extends Cheeger's work because no Poincare inequality is needed and the measure-theoretic doubling property is weakened to the metric doubling property of the support of m. We also discuss the lower semicontinuity of the slope of Lipschitz functions and some open problems.
