Solvability of a mixed variational problem

Raluca Ciurcea, Andaluzia Matei


We consider a variational problem arising from contact mechanics, that consists into a system of two variational inequalities involving Lagrange multipliers. Using elements of convex analysis, we prove the existence of at least one solution. Moreover, the uniqueness and the stability are discussed.
