The report contains a summary of research conducted in the application of variational methods in elastic stability. Particular attention is given to the nonexistence of adjacent equilibrium positions at bifurcation points. Resolution of this concept was achieved and appropriately reported in the technical literature. In addition, a plate theory considering variable Youngs modulus and Poissons ratio through the thickness was presented by the author. Author
