# An Implicit Sweeping Process Approach to Quasistatic Evolution Variational Inequalities

@article{Adly2018AnIS, title={An Implicit Sweeping Process Approach to Quasistatic Evolution Variational Inequalities}, author={Samir Adly and Tahar Haddad}, journal={SIAM J. Math. Anal.}, year={2018}, volume={50}, pages={761-778} }

In this paper, we study a new variant of Moreau's sweeping process with velocity constraint. Based on an adapted version of Moreau's catching-up algorithm, we show the well-posedness (in the sense existence and uniqueness) of this problem in a general framework. We show the equivalence between this implicit sweeping process and a quasistatic evolution variational inequality. It is well known that the variational formulations of many mechanical problems with unilateral contact and friction lead… Expand

State-Dependent Implicit Sweeping Process in the Framework of Quasistatic Evolution Quasi-Variational Inequalities

This paper deals with the existence and uniqueness of solutions for a class of state-dependent sweeping processes with constrained velocity in Hilbert spaces without using any compactness assumption, and introduces a new notion called hypomonotonicity-like of the normal cone to the moving set, which is satisfied by many important cases.
