ABSTRACT
We consider the Willmore-type functional where H and K denote mean and Gaussian curvature of a surface Î“, and $${\gamma \in [0,1]}$$ is a real parameter. Using direct methods of the calculus of variations, we prove existence of surfaces of revolution generated by symmetric graphs which are solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equation corresponding to $${\mathcal{W}_{\gamma}}$$ and which satisfy the following boundary conditions: the height at the boundary is prescribed, and the second boundary condition is the natural one when considering critical points where only the position at the boundary is fixed. In the particular case Î³ = 0 these boundary conditions are arbitrary positive height Î± and zero mean curvature.

stationary rotating surface is a compact surface in Euclidean space whose mean curvature H at each point x satisfies 2 H( x) = a r( x) + b, where r( x) denotes the distance from x to a fixed straight-line L, and a and b are constants. These surfaces are solutions of a variational problem that...

Problem statement: Demand considered in most of the classical inventory models is constant, while in most of the practical cases the demand changes with time. In this study model has been framed to study the items whose demand changes with time and deterioration rate increases with time. The...

Form of differential calculus in which instead of a function y = f(x)â€”which has one variableâ€”a function of two or more variables is considered; for example, z = f(x,y). Such functions represent a surface in three-dimensional space.
