The vanishing discount problem for monotone systems of Hamilton-Jacobi equations. Part 1: linear coupling

• Received: 30 September 2019 Accepted: 06 February 2020 Published: 21 August 2020
• We establish a convergence theorem for the vanishing discount problem for a weakly coupled system of Hamilton-Jacobi equations. The crucial step is the introduction of Mather measures and their relatives for the system, which we call respectively viscosity Mather and Green-Poisson measures. This is done by the convex duality and the duality between the space of continuous functions on a compact set and the space of Borel measures on it. This is part 1 of our study of the vanishing discount problem for systems, which focuses on the linear coupling, while part 2 will be concerned with nonlinear coupling.
