In this article, we report the results we obtained when investigating the numerical solution of some nonlinear eigenvalue problems for the Monge-Ampère operator v → det D2v. The methodology we employ relies on the following ingredients: (i) a divergence formulation of the eigenvalue problems under consideration. (ii) The time discretization by operator-splitting of an initial value problem (a kind of gradient flow) associated with each eigenvalue problem. (iii) A finite element approximation relying on spaces of continuous piecewise affine functions. To validate the above methodology, we applied it to the solution of problems with known exact solutions: The results we obtained suggest convergence to the exact solution when the space discretization step h → 0. We considered also test problems with no known exact solutions.
