Abstract: This paper describes the connections between Liouville type theorems and interior regularity results for bounded weak solutions of quasilinear elliptic systems with quadratic growth. It is shown that equivalence does in general hold only in some restricted sense. A complete correspondence can be established in certain cases, e.g. for small solutions and for minima of quadratic variational integrals.
