**Abstract:** The ∞‐Bilaplacian is a third‐order fully nonlinear PDE given by
Δ∞2u≔()Δu3||normalD()Δu2=0.
In this work, we build a numerical method aimed at quantifying the nature of solutions to this problem, which we call ∞‐biharmonic functions. For fixed p we design a mixed finite element scheme for the prelimiting equation, the p‐Bilaplacian
Δp2u≔Δ||Δup−2Δu=0.
We prove convergence of the numerical solution to the weak solution of Δp2u=0 and show that we are able to pass to the limit p → ∞. We perform various tests aimed…

“…In Ref. 16, equations of this type and the structure of their solutions were studied using appropriate numerical schemes. One of the goals of this paper is to construct new closed form solutions complementing these results.…”

“…Diffuse derivatives can be seen as measure-theoretic disintegrations whose barycentres are the distributional derivatives (see [29]). For further results relevant to D-solutions and their applications, see [30]- [32], [34,10,35,13], [36]- [38].…”

“…Herein we follow an approach based on recent advances in Calculus of Variations in the space L ∞ (see [22,23,24,25]) developed recently for functionals involving higher order derivatives. The field has been initiated in the 1960s by Gunnar Aronsson (see e.g.…”
