Abstract and Applied Analysis, 2019, vol. 2019, 1-9
We define and study - solutions of the Aronsson equation (AE), a second order quasi linear equation. We show that such super/subsolutions make the Hamiltonian monotone on the trajectories of the closed loop Hamiltonian dynamics. We give a short, general proof that - solutions are absolutely minimizing functions. We discuss how - supersolutions of (AE) become special Lyapunov functions of symmetric control systems, and allow to find continuous feedbacks driving the system to a target in finite time, except on a singular manifold. A consequence is a simple proof that the corresponding minimum time function is locally Lipschitz continuous away from the singular manifold, despite classical results showing that it should only be HÃ¶lder continuous unless appropriate conditions hold. We provide two examples for HÃ¶rmander and Grushin families of vector fields where we construct - solutions (even classical) explicitly.
