Examples of optimal solutions of infinite horizon variational problems arising in continuum mechanics

(1) Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel

In this article we construct several important examples of optimal solutions of infinite horizon second order variational problems. The problems are related to a model in thermodynamics introduced in Coleman, Marcus and Mizel, Arch. Rational Mech. Anal. 117 (1992), 321–347.

Keywords: Infinite horizon problems, c-optimal minimizers, periodic minimizers
