function U .
2. The function U is the orthogonal projection of u onto S0 with respect to strain
energy, i.e., A(V u ; U ) = 0 N
8V 2 S0 : (7.2.6) N
3. The minimizing function U 2 S0 satis es the Galerkin problem A(V U ) = (V f ) N
8V 2 S0 : (7.2.7) 1
8v 2 H0 : (7.2.8) N
In particular, if S0 is the whole of H0 A(v u) = (v f ) Proof. Our proof will omit several technical details, which appear in, e.g., Wait and
Mitchell 21], Chapter 6.
Let us begin with (7.2.7). If U minimizes I W ] over S0 then for any and any
V 2 S0
I U ] I U + V ]:
I U ] A(U + V U + V ) ; 2(U + V f )
I U ] I U ] + 2 A(V U ) ; (V f )] + 2 A(V V )
0 2 A(V U ) ; (V f )] + 2 A(V V ):
This inequality must hold for all possible of either sign thus, (7.2.7) must be satis ed.
Equation (7.2.8) follows by repeating these arguments with S0 replaced by H01.
Next, replace v in (7.2.8) by V 2 S0 H01 and subtract (7.2.7) to obtain (7.2.6).
In order to prove Conclusion 1, consider the identity A(u ; U...
