We discuss some implications of linear programming for Mather theory [13-15] and its finite dimensional approximations. We find that the complementary slackness condition of duality theory formally implies that the Mather set lies in an n-dimensional graph and as well predicts the relevant nonlinear PDE for the “weak KAM” theory of Fathi [5-8].
