Abstract: Let $ M$ be a hypersurface in $ {{\mathbf{R}}^{d + 1}}$ whose Gauss map has small BMO norm. This condition is closely related to (but much weaker than) the requirement that the principal curvatures of $ M$ have small $ {L^d}\left( M \right)$ norm. (The relationship between these two conditions is a nonlinear geometrical analogue of a classical Sobolev embedding.) This paper deals with the problem of understanding the geometrical constraints imposed on $ M$ by the requirement that the Gauss map have small BMO norm.
