Title: Convexity of solutions to nonlinear PDEs

Abstract: I will revisit the convexity result of O. Alvarez, J.-M. Lasry, and P.-L. Lions in which they find sufficient conditions on a PDO to ensure the convexity of solutions of the corresponding PDE. I will describe the derivation of a slightly sharper result, which is more amenable for applications to similar problems with PDE solutions and level set convexity.
