The adjoint method, recently introduced by Evans, is used to study obstacle problems, weakly coupled systems, cell problems for weakly coupled systems of Hamilton - Jacobi equations, and weakly coupled systems of obstacle type. In particular, new results about the speed of convergence of some approximation procedures are derived.

Keywords: adjoint methods, cell problems, Hamilton − Jacobi equations, obstacle problems, weakly coupled systems, weak KAM theory
