We consider a rate independent evolution variational inequality with an arbitrary convex closed constraint Z in a Hilbert space X. The main results consist in proving that it is well-posed in the Young integral setting in the space of functions of essentially bounded variation for every Z and in the space of regulated functions provided 0 lies in the interior of Z.
Keywords: Hysteresis, evolution variational inequality, Young integral, play operator.
