The articles that contain this distinctive annual quantity for the *Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics* sequence were written in honor of Gilbert Strang, a global popular mathematician and unprecedented individual. Written by means of best specialists in complementarity, duality, international optimization, and quantum computations, this assortment unearths the great thing about those mathematical disciplines and investigates contemporary advancements in international optimization, nonconvex and nonsmooth research, nonlinear programming, theoretical and engineering mechanics, huge scale computation, quantum algorithms and computation, and data theory.

Much of the fabric, together with a few of the methodologies, is written for nonexperts and is meant to stimulate graduate scholars and younger school to enterprise into this wealthy area of analysis; it's going to additionally gain researchers and practitioners in different parts of utilized arithmetic, mechanics, and engineering.

2) has a solution p∗ ∈ Q∗ , and F (u, Λu) = −F ∗ (Λ∗ p∗ , −p∗ ). 1) is unique. The rest of the chapter is organized as follows. 2 we introduce a model elliptic variational inequality of the second kind and its finite element approximation. We provide detailed derivation and analysis of a posteriori error estimates of the finite element solutions for the model problem. 3 we formulate a dual problem for the model, and use the dual problem to establish a general a posteriori error estimate for any approximation of the solution of the model elliptic variational inequality.

The bottleneck is in moving from the interior of S to the minimal cut ∂S. The distribution of material is uniform in S, and its destination is uniform along ∂S, to use all the capacity allowed by |v| ≤ 1. How is the shortest path (Monge) flow from S to ∂S related to the maximum flow? 4. Directed Graphs and Flows. Chung [8, 9] has emphasized that Cheeger’s theory (and the Laplacian itself) is not yet fully developed for directed graphs. For maximal flow on networks, Ford and Fulkerson [13] had no special diﬃculty when the edge capacities depend on the direction of flow.
