The paper offers a new approach to handling difficult parametric inverse problems in elasticity and thermo-elasticity, formulated as global optimization ones. The proposed strategy is composed of two phases. In the first, global phase, the stochastic hp-HGS algorithm recognizes the basins of attraction of various objective minima. In the second phase, the… (More)
A class of variational-hemivariational inequalities is studied in this paper. An inequality in the class involves two nonlinear operators and two nondifferentiable functionals, of which at least one is convex. An existence and uniqueness result is proved for a solution of the inequality. Continuous dependence of the solution on the data is shown.… (More)
