Mixed variational principles are developed for a general class of linear initial-value problems of parabolic as well as hyperbolic type. The Euler equations are the governing differential equations of the problem as opposed to equivalent integro-differential equations of Gurtin's method. Examples are given for the heat conduction and the wave equations. © 1975 Oxford University Press.
