Title: Hidden convex structures for nonlinear PDE
Abstract: In this expository lecture I will discuss a selection of
nonlinear PDE, for each of which convex analysis is applicable,
but in ways that are far from obvious.
I will describe from this viewpoint simple evolving sandpile models,
optimal mass transfer problems, and kinetic formulations for conservation
laws and Hamilton-Jacobi equations.
