Duality principles in nonconvex systems
by David Yang Gao

Persian Title: اصول دوگانگی در سیستم های nonconvex

Summary and Info
Motivated by practical problems in engineering and physics, drawing on a wide range of applied mathematical disciplines, this book is the first to provide, within a unified framework, a selfcontained comprehensive mathematical theory of duality for general nonconvex, nonsmooth systems, with emphasis on methods and applications in engineering mechanics. Topics covered include the classical (minimax) monoduality of convex static equilibria, the beautiful biduality in dynamical systems, the interesting triduality in nonconvex problems and the complicated multiduality in general canonical systems. A potentially powerful sequential canonical dual transformation method for solving fully nonlinear problems is developed heuristically and illustrated by use of many interesting examples as well as extensive applications in a wide variety of nonlinear systems, including differential equations, variational problems and inequalities, constrained global optimization, multiwell phase transitions, nonsmooth postbifurcation, large deformation mechanics, structural limit analysis, differential geometry and nonconvex dynamical systems. With exceptionally coherent and lucid exposition, the work fills a big gap between the mathematical and engineering sciences. It shows how to use formal language and duality methods to model natural phenomena, to construct intrinsic frameworks in different fields and to provide ideas, concepts and powerful methods for solving nonconvex, nonsmooth problems arising naturally in engineering and science. Much of the book contains material that is new, both in its manner of presentation and in its research development. A selfcontained appendix provides some necessary background from elementary functional analysis. Audience: The book will be a valuable resource for students and researchers in applied mathematics, physics, mechanics and engineering. The whole volume or selected chapters can also be recommended as a text for both senior undergraduate and graduate courses in applied mathematics, mechanics, general engineering science and other areas in which the notions of optimization and variational methods are employed.
