Abstract:

The authors have studied a novel numerical solution approach to Monge Ampere type equations. The equations have important applications. In particular, the leading term in the balance equation in dynamic meteorology has the form 1 . In a more complicated form, an equation of this type appears in the von Karman system of equations for elasticity and also in inverse problems of geometric optics. It also turned out that recent progress in the study of fully nonlinear equations became possible after important properties of the equation 1 were discovered.
