Further PDE methods for weak KAM theory

We introduce and make estimates for several new approximations that in appropriate asymptotic limits yield the key PDE for weak KAM theory, namely a Hamilton–Jacobi type equation for a potential u and a coupled transport equation for a measure σ. We revisit as well a singular variational approximation introduced in Evans (Calc Vari Partial Differ Equ 17:159–177, 2003) and demonstrate “approximate integrability” of certain phase space dynamics related to the Hamiltonian flow. Other examples include a pair of strongly coupled PDE suggested by the Lions–Lasry theory (Lasry and Lions in Japan J Math 2:229–260, 2007) of mean field games and a new and extremely singular elliptic equation suggested by sup-norm variational theory.
