Existence of solutions for a variational unilateral system

Marcondes R. Clark & Osmundo A. Lima

In this work the authors study the existence of weak solutions of the nonlinear unilateral mixed problem associated to the inequalities
$$ \displaylines{
 u_{tt}-M(| \nabla u| ^{2})\Delta u+\theta \geq f, \cr
 \theta_t-\Delta \theta +u_t\geq g ,}
where f, g, m are given real-valued functions with M positive.
