Browder-Tikhonov regularization for a class of evolution second order hemivariational inequalities. (English) Zbl 1207.49012

This paper deals with the Browder-Tikhonov regularization method for a class of evolution second order hemivariational inequalities with non-coercive operators. It is proved that the regularized hemivariational inequalities are solvable under certain conditions. Based on this solvability result, a sequence is constructed whose weak cluster point is a solution of an evaluation second order hemivariational inequality.
