Recall that a smooth Riemannian metric on a simply connected domain can
be realized as the pull-back metric of an orientation preserving deformation if
and only if the associated Riemann curvature tensor vanishes identically.
When this condition fails, one seeks a deformation yielding
the closest metric realization.
We set up a variational formulation of this problem by
introducing the non-Euclidean version of the nonlinear
elasticity functional, and establish its Γ-convergence under the proper
scaling. As a corollary, we obtain new necessary and sufficient conditions
for existence of a W2,2 isometric immersion of a given 2d metric
into $\mathbb R^3$.
