SIREV Book Review

This second edition replaces Variational Analysis in Sobolev and BV Spaces: Applications to PDEs and Optimization (MP06, ISBN 978-0-898716-00-9), 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:

  • new section on capacity theory and elements of potential theory now includes the concepts of quasi-open sets and quasi-continuity,
  • increased number of examples in the areas of linearized elasticity system, obstacles problems, convection-diffusion, and semilinear equations,
  • new section on mass transportation problems and the Kantorovich relaxed formulation of the Monge problem,
  • new subsection on stochastic homogenization establishes the mathematical tools coming from ergodic theory, and
  • an entirely new and comprehensive chapter (17) devoted to gradient flows and the dynamical approach to equilibria.

The book is intended for Ph.D. students, researchers, and practitioners who want to approach the field of variational analysis in a systematic way.
