Abstract: An elastic energy functional of a Riemannian manifold is a function that measures the distance of an embedding u:→ℝd from being isometric. In many applications, the manifold in consideration is actually a limit of other manifolds, that is, is a limit of n in some sense. Assuming that we have an elastic energy functional for each n, can we obtain an energy functional of which is a limit of the functionals of n?
