  • Abstract

In this paper, we consider the unilateral obstacle problem, trying to find the numerical solution and coincidence set. We construct an equivalent format of the original problem and  propose a method with a second-order in time dissipative system for solving the equivalent format. Several numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness and stability of the proposed algorithm. Convergence speed comparisons with existent numerical algorithm are also provided and our algorithm is fast.

  • Keywords

Variational inequality, obstacle problem, dynamical system, dynamical functional partical method.
