We show that a planar bi-Lipschitz orientation-preserving homeomorphism can be approximated in the W1,p norm, together with its inverse, with an orientation-preserving homeomorphism which is piecewise affine or smooth.

The remarkable fact is that a priori the directions of the faces are just Borel and no Lipschitz regularity is known. Notwithstanding that, we also prove that a Green-Gauss formula for these directions holds on special sets.

Our approach does not rely on existence and regularity results for optimal transport maps on Riemannian manifolds, but it is based on the Eulerian point of view recently introduced by Otto and Westdickenberg [SIAM J. Math. Anal., 37 (2005), pp. 1227-1255] and on the metric characterization of the gradient flows generated by the functionals in the Wasserstein space.1 aDaneri, Sara1 aSavarè, Giuseppe uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/3413
