We consider a general class of ordinary differential systems which describes input-output relations of hysteresis types, for instance, play or stop operators. The system consists of two first-order nonlinear ODEs and one of them includes a subdifferential operator depending on the unknowns. Our main objective of this paper is to give an existence-uniqueness result for the system as well as to give various numerical simulations of input-output relations which the system describes as typical cases.
Thermoelastic plate model with a control term in the thermal equation is considered. The main result in this paper is that with thermal control, locally distributed within the interior and square integrable in time and space, any finite energy solution can be driven to zero at the control time .
A version of Zhong′s coercivity result (1997) is established for nonsmooth functionals expressed as a sum , where is locally Lipschitz and is convex, lower semicontinuous, and proper. This is obtained as a consequence of a general result describing the asymptotic behavior of the functions verifying the above structure hypothesis. Our approach relies on a version of Ekeland′s variational principle. In proving our coercivity result we make use of a new general Palais-Smale condition. The relationship with other results is discussed.
