The calculus of variations is a classical area of mathematical analysis yet its myriad applications in science and technology continue to keep it an active area of research. Encompassing two volumes, this set brings together leading experts who focus on critical point theory, differential equations, and the variational aspects of optimal control. The books cover monotonicity, nonlinear optimization, the impossible pilot wave, the Lavrentiev phenomenon, and elliptic problems.
