On the variational representation of solutions to some quasilinear equations and systems of hyperbolic type on the basis of potential theory
We demonstrate a method that permits to obtain generalized solutions for some quasilinear equations and systems of hyperbolic type. The corresponding variational principle is constructed using the theory of equilibrium of a potential in an external field.
