Wiener-Hopf equations and variational inequalities. (English) Zbl 0799.49010

Summary: We show that the general variational inequality problem is equivalent to solving the Wiener-Hopf equations. We use this equivalence to suggest and analyze a number of iterative algorithms for solving general variational inequalities. We also discuss the convergence criteria for these algorithms.
