The author summarizes some theorems and sketches part of the proofs concerning existence of periodic solutions to the problems \[ u_{tt}- u_{xx}\pm F(u)=H(t,x),\quad u(t,0)=u(t,\pi)=0, \]
\[ u_ t-(F(u_ x))_ x=H(t,x),\quad u(t,0)=u(t,1)=0, \]
\[ u_{tt}-(F(u_ x))_ x=H(t,x),\quad u_ x(t,0)=u_ x(t,\pi)=0. \] Here F denotes Ishlinski hysteresis operator and H is a given time-periodic function. He uses Galerkin approximation and time discretization; the third problem is first transformed into an auxiliary problem.
