A boundary element method for Signorini problems in three dimensions. (English) Zbl 0723.65092
A Signorini problem in three dimensions is reduced to a variational inequality on the boundary, and a boundary element method is described for the numerical approximation of its solution; an optimal error estimate is also given.
