In this paper we construct upper bounds for families of functionals of the form (Equation presented) where Δ Hu = div {χΩu}. Particular cases of such functionals arise in Micromagnetics. We also use our technique to construct upper bounds for functionals that appear in a variational formulation of the method of vanishing viscosity for conservation laws.
