Topics in nonsmooth mechanics, 295-326 (1988).
[For the entire collection see Zbl 0646.00014.]
Hysteretic effects are considered here with the help of Volterra-like functionals, i.e. functionals depending on the past history. The classical Duhem-Madelung and Preisach models of hysteresis are introduced. Following the work of Krasnosel’skij, existence theorems are presented for some examples ranging from ferromagnetism, biological models and plasticity to surface tension at solid liquid interfaces.
