The goal of this paper is to describe the oscillatory microstructure that can emerge from minimizing sequences for nonconvex energies. We consider integral functionals that are defined on real valued (scalar) functions u(x) which are nonconvex in the gradient ux and possibly also in u. To characterize the microstructures for these nonconvex energies, we minimize the associated relaxed energy using two novel approaches: i) a semi-analytical method based on control systems theory, ii) and a numerical scheme that combines convex splitting together with a modified version of the split Bregman algorithm. These solutions are then used to gain information about minimizing sequences of the original problem and the spatial distribution of microstructure.
