Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics 26. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-1-4614-4231-8/hbk; 978-1-4614-4232-5/ebook). xvi, 285 p. (2013).
This book gives the theory of nonlinear inclusions and hemivariational inequalities with emphasis on the study of contact mechanics. The work covers both abstract results in the area of nonlinear inclusions and hemivariational inequalities. The provided results are based on original research on the existence, uniqueness, regularity and behavior of the solutions for various classes of nonlinear stationary and evolutionary inclusions. In carrying out the variational analysis of various contact models, one systematically uses results of hemivariational inequalities and, in this way, illustrates the applications of nonlinear analysis in contact mechanics. New mathematical methods are introduced and applied in the study of nonlinear problems, which describe the contact between a deformable body and a foundation.
