Do you have an example for me which shows that it is not possible? Nov 19 comment Hill climbing extremist Imagine single hill. In order to get from point A to point B, you go straight uphill and you get on the top of this hill then you go downhill in the direction you would come from if you started in the point B, in this way you get to point B. Such a path is not an integral curve of that vector field. Nov 19 comment Hill climbing extremist Sorry but I can't figure out your idea. Please give me a counterexample which satisfies my conditions, than I will be happy, but now I do not find your answer helpful. I believe that you still misunderstand my question, have in mind following simple example: Nov 18 comment Hill climbing extremist And important thing is that I'm not looking for integral curves of some vector field, because you cannot get into point, where the field is zero, in finite time(vector field has to be lipschitz). But in my question such a points play very important role. Nov 18 comment Hill climbing extremist Sorry I had to down vote. Your answer is not helpfull in any way. Your 'counter example' is the exact reason why $\phi$ has to be zero at infinity. The variational formulation does not make any sense. Constant paths minimizies the integral or paths that are perpendicular to the $\nabla \phi$. I'm not interested in such paths.
