Index
This second edition replaces Variational Analysis in Sobolev and BV Spaces: Applications to PDEs and Optimization (MP06, ISBN 9780898716009), which is no longer available.
This volume is an excellent guide for anyone interested in variational analysis, optimization, and PDEs. It offers a detailed presentation of the most important tools in variational analysis as well as applications to problems in geometry, mechanics, elasticity, and computer vision.
This second edition covers several new topics:
Audience
The book is intended for Ph.D. students, researchers, and practitioners who want to approach the field of variational analysis in a systematic way.
