A map u: Ω ⊆ Rn⟶ ℝN, is said to be ∞-harmonic if it satisfies (Formula Presented.). The system (1) is the model of vector-valued Calculus of Variations in L and arises as the “Euler-Lagrange” equation in relation to the supremal functional E∞(u, Ω) := ǁDuǁL(Ω). In this work we provide numerical approximations of solutions to the Dirichlet problem when n= 2 and in the vector valued case of N= 2 , 3 for certain carefully selected boundary data on the unit square. Our experiments demonstrate interesting and unexpected phenomena occurring in the vector valued case and provide insights on the structure of general solutions and the natural separation to phases they present.
