Noncoercive Variational Problems and Related Results
In establishing a general theory of the existence of solutions for noncoercive variational problems and constrained problems formulated as variational inequalities or hemivariational inequalities, this Research Note illustrates recent mathematical approaches and results with various examples from mathematics and mechanics. The book unifies ideas for the treatment of various noncoercive problems and provides previously unpublished results for variational inequalities and hemivariational inequalities. The author points out important applications in mechanics and their mathfematical tratment using recession tools. This book will be of particular interest to researchers in pure and aplied mathematics and mechanics.
