Introduction to weak KAM theory II

Introductory Workshop: Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis August 20, 2018 - August 24, 2018

August 21, 2018 (11:00 AM PDT - 12:00 PM PDT)
Speaker(s): Marie-Claude Arnaud (Université d'Avignon)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
  • Hamiltonian dynamics

  • Lagrangian dynamics

  • weak KAM

Primary Mathematics Subject Classification
Secondary Mathematics Subject Classification



Using a very simple example, we will introduce Lagrangian Dynamics and make the link with Hamiltonian Dynamics. We will explain the connection between Euler-Lagrange equations and the Lagrangian variational approach. This will be the way to introduce famous weak KAM theory. We will finish by the relation with Hamilton-Jacobi equation and the viscosity solutions.
