In this paper we study a discrete multi-dimensional version of Aubry-Mather theory using mostly tools from the theory of viscosity solutions. We set this problem as an infinite dimensional linear programming problem. The dual problem turns out to be a discrete analog of the Hamilton-Jacobi equations. We present some applications to discretizations of Lagrangian systems.

In the present article, we study the numerical approximation of a system of Hamilton-Jacobi and transport equations arising in geometrical optics. We consider a semi-Lagrangian scheme. We prove the

The purpose of this paper is to study the existence of solutions of a Hamilton-Jacobi equation in a minimax discrete-time case and to show different characterizations for a real number called the

Convergence of discrete Aubry–Mather model in the continuous limit

We develop two approximation schemes for solving the cell equation and the discounted cell equation using Aubry–Mather–Fathi theory. The Hamiltonian is supposed to be Tonelli, time-independent and

Abstract In this paper we study the generalized Mather problem, whose applications range from classical mechanics to stochastic control and discrete dynamics, and present some applications to

Minimizing orbits in the discrete Aubry–Mather model

We consider a generalization of the Frenkel–Kontorova model in higher dimension leading to a new theory of configurations with minimal energy, as in Aubry's theory or in Mather's twist approach in

Regularization of Subsolutions in Discrete Weak KAM Theory

Abstract We expose different methods of regularizations of subsolutions in the context of discrete weak $\text{KAM}$ theory that allow us to prove the existence and the density of ${{C}^{1,1}}$

Minimax probabilities for Aubry-Mather Problems

In this paper we study minimax Aubry-Mather measures and its main properties. We consider first the discrete time problem and then the continuous time case. In the discrete time problem we establish
