Abstract: The min-maximum variational principles for Von Karman plates are formulated by using the theory of convex analysis. It is shown that the global extremum criteria for both the total potential and complementary variational functional is directly related to a so-called dual gap function. The existence and uniqueness of the variational solutions are proved. And the saddle point condition of the generalized variational principle is also discussed.
