Abstract. We consider the minimization problem of the supernorm functional F(u,\Omega)=esssup H(x,u,\nabla u) over W^{1,\infty}-space. We will discuss some recent development on the basic issues such (1) necessary and sufficient conditions on existence; (2) Aronsson's equation for absolute minimizers; (3) uniqueness and regularity for Aronsson's equation. Two examples of applications from image interpolation and random game theory will also be mentioned.
