A model for hysteresis of distributed systems

  • A. Visintin


Memory effects of hysteresis type are taken into account as constitutive relations for parabolic and hyperbolic problems, also with free boundaries; existence results are proved. A scheme of construction of functionals representing hysteresis phenomena is presented and examples are given; in particular ferromagnetism is considered.
