Introduction to weak KAM theory I
Introductory Workshop: Hamiltonian systems, from topology to applications through analysis August 20, 2018 - August 24, 2018
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
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.
