This paper studies, for a differential variational inequality involving a locally prox-regular set, a regularization process with a family of classical differential equations whose solutions converge to the solution of the differential variational inequality. The concept of local prox-regularity will be termed in a quantified way, as (r, α)-prox-regularity.
We prove in the general setting of lower semicontinuous functions on Banach spaces the relation between the Rockafellar directional derivative and the mixed lower limit of the lower Dini derivatives. As a byproduct we derive the famous inclusions of tangent cones of closed sets in Banach spaces. The results are established using as principal tool(More)
