A Monotone Hull Operation for Maps
Lehrstuhl für Mathematik / Analysis, RWTH Aachen University, Templergraben 55, 52062 Aachen, Germany
The convex hull of a function φ is its largest l.s.c. convex minorant. In this paper, we propose a similar construction for monotone vector fields. The definition is based on the theory of autoconjugate functions (which are also called self-dual Lagrangians) and their relation to monotone maps.
