Generic uniqueness of a minimal solution for variational problems on a torus
Received17 Jul 2001
We study minimal solutions for one-dimensional variational problems on a torus. We show that, for a generic integrand and any rational number , there exists a unique (up to translations) periodic minimal solution with rotation number .
