On the time derivative in an obstacle problem

Peter Lindqvist[1]

(1) Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway

We prove that the time derivative of the solution for the obstacle problem related to the evolutionary $p$-Laplace equation exists in Sobolev’s sense, provided that the given obstacle is smooth enough. We keep $p \geq 2$.

Keywords: Obstacle problem, time derivative, parabolic variational inequality
