This paintings presents a posteriori errors research for mathematical idealizations in modeling boundary worth difficulties, specifically these coming up in mechanical purposes, and for numerical approximations of diverse nonlinear var- tional difficulties. An errors estimate is termed a posteriori if the computed resolution is utilized in assessing its accuracy. A posteriori mistakes estimation is valuable to m- suring, controlling and minimizing blunders in modeling and numerical appr- imations. during this publication, the most mathematical instrument for the advancements of a posteriori mistakes estimates is the duality thought of convex research, documented within the famous booklet by means of Ekeland and Temam (). The duality concept has been discovered worthy in mathematical programming, mechanics, numerical research, and so on. The e-book is split into six chapters. the 1st bankruptcy reports a few uncomplicated notions and effects from sensible research, boundary worth difficulties, elliptic variational inequalities, and finite aspect approximations. the main appropriate a part of the duality thought and convex research is in short reviewed in bankruptcy 2.

In certain situations, the frictional contact problem stated above describes the material deformation quite accurately. In more complicated situations, such as when the contact zone is not prescribed a priori or when more realistic frictional contact laws are used, the frictional contact problem here can be viewed as an intermediate problem for a typical step in an iterative solution procedure for solving the more complicated contact problem. For a variational analysis of the problem, we need to introduce a function space and some functionals defined over the space.

59, 601 where the mathematical theory is motived by duality in natural phenomena with particular emphasis on mechanics. In this chapter, we review some basic notions and results on convex sets, convex functions and their properties as well as the duality theory. Detailed discussions and proofs of the stated results can be found in  or . In the theory of convex analysis, it is convenient to consider functions that take on values on the extended real line E. Recall that a functional f : V + is said to be proper if f ( v ) > -cc b'v E V and f ( u ) < cx for some u E V.
