Abstract

The Jordan decomposition states that a function f: R → R is of bounded variation if and only if it can be written as the dierence of two monotone increasing functions. In this paper we generalize this property to real valued BV functions of many variables, extending naturally the concept of monotone function. Our result is an extension of a result obtained by Alberti, Bianchini and Crippa. A counterexample is given which prevents further extensions.
