A posteriori error analysis for parabolic variational inequalities

Kyoung-Sook Moon, Ricardo H. Nochetto, Tobias von Petersdorff, Chen-song Zhang (2007)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Motivated by the pricing of American options for baskets we consider a parabolic variational inequality in a bounded polyhedral domain Ω d with a continuous piecewise smooth obstacle. We formulate a fully discrete method by using piecewise linear finite elements in space and the backward Euler method in time. We define an a posteriori error estimator and show that it gives an upper bound for the error in L2(0,T;H1(Ω)). The error estimator is localized in the sense that the size of the elliptic residual...

A principle of linearization in theory of stability of solutions of variational inequalities

Jiří Neustupa (1995)

Mathematica Bohemica

It is shown that the uniform exponential stability and the uniform stability at permanently acting disturbances of a sufficiently smooth but not necessarily steady-state solution of a general variational inequality is a consequence of the uniform exponential stability of a zero solution of another (so called linearized) variational inequality.

A remark on the local Lipschitz continuity of vector hysteresis operators

Pavel Krejčí (2001)

Applications of Mathematics

It is known that the vector stop operator with a convex closed characteristic Z of class C 1 is locally Lipschitz continuous in the space of absolutely continuous functions if the unit outward normal mapping n is Lipschitz continuous on the boundary Z of Z . We prove that in the regular case, this condition is also necessary.

Constantes de Sobolev des arbres

Marc Bourdon (2007)

Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France

Étant donnés p [ 1 , + [ et un arbre T dont chaque sommet est de valence au moins  3 , on étudie la constante de Sobolev d’exposant p de T , c’est-à-dire la plus petite constante σ p telle que pour tout u p ( T 0 ) on ait u p p σ p d u p p . Notre motivation vient de la recherche de graphes finis avec des petites constantes de Poincaré d’exposant  p , en vue d’obtenir des exemples de groupes qui ont la propriété de point fixe sur les espaces L p .
