Yasue, "Stochastic calculus of variations," Journal of Functional Analysis, vol.
Since J(x) [greater than or equal to] 0 for any admissible function x and taking [bar.x](t) = t, which satisfies the given boundary conditions (55), gives J([bar.x]) = 0, we conclude that x gives the global minimum to the fractional problem of the calculus of variations that consists in minimizing functional (54) subject to the boundary conditions (55).
