A SHORT REMARK ON HE-LEE’S VARIATIONAL PRINCIPLE FOR HEAT CONDUCTION

ABSTRACT
Tao and Chen claimed that they obtained a new constrained variational principle for heat conduction (Tao, Z. L., Chen, G. H., Thermal Science, 17 (2013), 3, pp. 951-952), however, this short note concludes that it is not new at all. It is equivalent to He-Lee 2009 variational principle.
