A PDE approach to nonlinear potential theory in metric measure spaces
Journal de Math. Pures et Appl.
We show that the tools recently introduced by the first author in  allow to give a PDE description of p-harmonic functions in metric measure setting. Three applications are given: the first is about new results on the sheaf property of harmonic functions, the second is a PDE proof of the fact that the composition of a subminimizer with a convex and non-decreasing function is again a subminimizer, and the third is the fact that the Busemann function associated to a line is harmonic on infinitesimally Hilbertian CD(0,N) spaces.
