Strongly nonlinear potential theory on metric spaces
We define Orlicz-Sobolev spaces on an arbitrary metric space with a Borel regular outer measure, and we develop a capacity theory based on these spaces. We study basic properties of capacity and several convergence results. We prove that each Orlicz-Sobolev function has a quasi-continuous representative. We give estimates for the capacity of balls when the measure is doubling. Under additional regularity assumption on the measure, we establish some relations between capacity and Hausdorff measures.
