A new kind of entropy solution of Cauchy problem of the strong degenerate parabolic equation [...] is introduced. If u0 ∈ L∞(RN), E = {Ei} ∈ (L2(QT))N and divE ∈ L2(QT), by a modified regularization method and choosing the suitable test functions, the BV estimates are got, the existence of the entropy solution is obtained. At last, by Kruzkov bi-variables method, the stability of the solutions is obtained.

This paper focuses on a one-dimensional wave equation being subjected to a unilateral boundary condition. Under appropriate regularity assumptions on the initial data, a new proof of existence and uniqueness results is proposed. The mass redistribution method, which is based on a redistribution of the body mass such that there is no inertia at the contact node, is introduced and its convergence is proved. Finally, some numerical experiments are reported.

We study in this paper some numerical schemes for hyperbolic systems with unilateral constraint. In particular, we deal with the scalar case, the isentropic gas dynamics system and the full-gas dynamics system. We prove the convergence of the scheme to an entropy solution of the isentropic gas dynamics with unilateral constraint on the density and mass loss. We also study the non-trivial steady states of the system.

In this paper we are interested in bilateral obstacle problems for quasilinear scalar conservation laws associated with Dirichlet boundary conditions. Firstly, we provide a suitable entropy formulation which ensures uniqueness. Then, we justify the existence of a solution through the method of penalization and by referring to the notion of entropy process solution due to specific properties of bounded sequences in ${L}^{\infty}$. Lastly, we study the behaviour of this solution and its stability properties with...

The purpose of this paper is to make a brief review of results obtained in the theory of variational inequalities for nonclassical operators, namely, of degenerate hyperbolic and variable type.

We deal with an optimal control problem with respect to a variable thickness for a dynamic viscoelastic plate with velocity constraints. The state problem has the form of a pseudohyperbolic variational inequality. The existence and uniqueness theorem for the state problem and the existence of an optimal thickness function are proved.

The existence of a solution to the dynamic contact of a body having a singular memory with a rigid undeformable support is proved under some weaker assumption than that in [3].
