Variational inequalities with strong nonlinearities

  • V. S. KlimovEmail author


We study a connection between critical values and topological characteristics of non-smooth functionals. We establish analogs of theorems about regular interval and “nek”. We also find lower estimates of solutions to variational inequalities with odd potential operators.
