Computing the Effective Hamiltonian using a Variational Approach

  title={Computing the Effective Hamiltonian using a Variational Approach},
  author={Diogo A. Gomes and Adam M. Oberman},
  journal={Proceedings of the 44th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control},
A numerical method for homogenization of Hamilton-Jacobi equations is presented and implemented as an L∞calculus of variations problem. Solutions are found by solving a nonlinear convex optimization problem. The numerical method is shown to be convergent and error estimates are provided. Several examples are worked in detail, including the cases of non-strictly convex Hamiltonians and Hamiltonians for which the cell problem has no solution.
