    We establish general representation formulas for solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equations widi convex Hamiltonians. In order to treat representation formulas on general domains, we introduce a notion of ideal boundary similar to the Martin boundary [21] in potential theory. We apply such representation formulas to investigate maximal solutions, in certain classes of functions, of Hamilton-Jacobi equations. Part of the results in this paper has been announced in [22].
