about

This book is motivated by stimulating problems in contact mechanics, emphasizing antiplane frictional contact with linearly elastic and viscoelastic materials.  It focuses on the essentials with respect to the qualitative aspects of several classes of variational inequalities (VIs). Clearly presented, easy to follow, and well-referenced, this work treats almost entirely VIs of the second kind, with much of the material being state-of-the-art.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The aim of the present outstanding book is to consider a wide set of problems arising in the mathematical modeling of mechanical systems under bilateral constraints. . This volume is primarily addressed to applied mathematicians working in the field of variational inequalities and their applications, especially those concerned with numerical aspects. . the book will also be useful for scientists from application areas, in particular, those from engineering and physics." (Ján Lovísek, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 j)
