On the Optimization of a Conservation Law
Rinaldo M. Colombo and Alessandro Groli
Consider the Cauchy problem for a conservation law and
assume that an integral functional on its solution is
defined. In this note we obtain an Euler-Lagrange equation
for the stationary points of this functional. An application
to the optimal management of traffic flows is considered.
