A chain rule in the space $L^{1}\left(\operatorname*{div};\Omega\right) $ is obtained under weak regularity conditions. This chain rule has important applications in the study of lower semicontinuity problems for general functionals of the form $\int_{\Omega}f(x,u,\nabla u) dx$ with respect to strong convergence in $L^{1}\left(\Omega\right) $ . Classical results of Serrin and of De Giorgi, Buttazzo and Dal Maso are extended and generalized.

    We deal with the class of functions defined as a sum of a uniformly convergent series of functions continuous both on a closed set and on its complement. Such functions are mentioned in the literature, e.g., in [1], [2], [3], [4]. We investigate the particular class of derivatives.
