This unique reference is the first book of its kind to give a complete and rigorous presentation of the mathematical study of the expressionsâ€“hemivariational inequalitiesâ€“arising in problems that involve nonconvex, nonsmooth energy functions. Establishing a theory of the existence of solutions for inequality problems involving nonconvexity and nonsmoothness, Mathematical Theory of Hemivariational Inequalities and Applications illustrates new mathematical results with examples from mechanics, engineering, and economics examines the structure of functions whose generalized gradient is pseudomonotone, generalized pseudomonotone, or quasipseudomonotone introduces a directional growth condition that permits the derivation of new existence results for discontinuous variational problems in nonreflexive vectorvalued function spaces describes a model of delamination in which noncoercivity occurs develops efficient, novel methods for the treatment of noncoercive problems provides neverbeforepublished existence results for constrained problems for nonconvex, starshaped sets and more!
