In this paper an eigenvalue complementarity problem (EiCP) is studied, which finds its origins in the solution of a contact problem in mechanics. The EiCP is shown to be equivalent to a Nonlinear Complementarity Problem, a Mathematical Programming Problem with Complementarity Constraints and a Global Optimization Problem. A finite Reformulation–Linearization Technique (Rlt)-based tree search algorithm is introduced for processing the EiCP via the lattermost of these formulations. Computational experience is included to highlight the efficacy of the above formulations and corresponding techniques for the solution of the EiCP.
