A Compactness Theorem for Curves of Maximal Slope for a Class of Nonsmooth and Nonconvex Functions
In paper , some existence and regularity results are given for solutions of evolution equations associated with nonsmooth functions defined on Hilbert spaces or more generally on metric spaces following the idea of searching the curves of maximal slope (steepest descent) of the function.
