Averaging for Hamilton-Jacobi PDE
In this talk I will discuss some old methods of Lions-Papanicolaou-
Varadhan for homogenizing Hamilton-Jacobi partial differential
equations, building thereby an "effective" Hamiltonian. I will then
describe some new and ongoing research (with D. Gomes) as to the
physical meaning of this effective Hamiltonian, and its consequences
for Hamiltonian ODE.
Refreshments will be served in Math Annex Room 1115, 3:15 p.m.
