On some nonlocal variational problems


Chipot, M; Gangbo, W; Kawohl, B (2006). On some nonlocal variational problems. Analysis and Applications, 4(4):345-356.

Abstract

We study uniqueness and non uniqueness of minimizers of functionals involving nonlocal quantities. We give also conditions which lead to a lack of minimizers and we show how minimization on an infinite dimensional space reduces here to a minimization on ℝ. Among other things, we prove that uniqueness of minimizers of functionals of the form ∫Ω a(∫Ω gu dx)|∇u|2 dx - 2 ∫Ω fu dx is ensured if a > 0 and 1/a is strictly concave in the sense that (1/a)″ < 0 on (0, ∞).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
