Optimal Structures and Laminates

  • Andrej Cherkaev
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 140)


In this book, two approaches will be examined to obtain the upper bounds of the quasiconvex envelope QF(v). The first approach is discussed in this chapter. It is based on a straightforward construction of the minimizing sequences. The second approach is discussed in Chapter 9; it is based on necessary conditions of optimality.
