The function of this ebook is to provide a short and easy, but rigorous, presentation of the rudiments of the so-called thought of Viscosity suggestions which applies to totally nonlinear 1st and second order Partial Differential Equations (PDE). For such equations, rather for 2d order ones, suggestions usually are non-smooth and traditional methods which will outline a "weak resolution" don't follow: classical, robust virtually far and wide, vulnerable, measure-valued and distributional ideas both don't exist or would possibly not also be outlined. the most reason behind the latter failure is that, the normal thought of utilizing "integration-by-parts" to be able to go derivatives to soft try out capabilities via duality, isn't to be had for non-divergence constitution PDE.

See Fig. 2. Since Q a ≥ u on Ω and Q a (xε ) = u(xε ), we have constructed a maximum of a Q − u at xε : (Q a − u)(z) ≤ 0 = (Q a − u)(xε ), for z ∈ Ω. 18) 2 Second Definitions and Basic Analytic Properties of the Notions 27 Fig. 2 An illustration of the sliding argument which gives |xε − x0 | ≤ 2 u C 0 (Ω) ε. Hence, for ε > 0 small, xε is an interior maximum in Ω, and also xε → x0 as ε → 0. 18) implies 1 2 a D Q (xε ) : z ⊗ z 2 1I : z ⊗ z, ·z+ 2ε u(z + xε ) ≤ u(xε ) + D Q a (xε ) · z + ≤ u(xε ) + as z → 0.
1) |x − y|2 , x ∈ Ω. 2) We call u ε the sup-convolution of u and u ε the inf-convolution of u. Remark 2 Geometrically, the sup-convolution of u at x is defined as follows: we “bend downwards” the graph of u near x by subtracting the paraboloid | · −x|2 /2ε which is centred at x. Then, u ε (x) is defined as the maximum of the “bent” function y → u(y) − |x − y|2 . 2ε The convergence u ε → u that we will establish rigorously later, can be seen geometrically as follows: the factor 1/ε of the paraboloid increases its curvature and makes it more and more steep as ε → 0.
2ε By choosing y := x, we see that u ε (x) ≥ u(x) for all x ∈ Ω. 6) 4 Mollification of Viscosity Solutions and Semiconvexity 55 (c) If u ≤ v and u, v ∈ C 0 (Ω), for all x, y ∈ Ω we have u(y) − |y − x|2 |y − x|2 ≤ v(y) − . 2ε 2ε By taking “sup” in y ∈ Ω, we obtain u ε (x) ≤ vε (x). (d) If ε ≤ ε , then for all x, y ∈ Ω we have u(y) − |y − x|2 |y − x|2 ≤ u(y) − . 2ε 2ε By taking “sup” in y ∈ Ω, we obtain u ε (x) ≤ u ε (x). 3). 7) for all y ∈ Ω. 7), we get |x ε − x|2 ≤ 4 u C 0 (Ω) ε, as a result, the set X (ε) is contained in the ball Bρ(ε) (x), where ρ(ε) = 2 u C 0 (Ω) ε.
