We use similar functional analytic methods to solve (a) a fully nonlinear second order elliptic equation, (b) a Hamilton-Jacobi equation, and (c) a functional/partial differential equation from plasma physics. The technique in each case is to approximate by the solutions of simpler problems, and then to pass to limits using a modification of G. Minty’s device to the spaceL .
