Convex Valued Geodesics and Applications to Sweeping Processes with Bounded Retraction
Dip. di Scienze Matematiche, Politecnico di Torino, 10129 Torino, Italy
We provide a formulation for sweeping processes with arbitrary locally bounded retraction, not necessarily left or right continuous. Moreover we provide a proof of the existence and uniqueness of solutions for this formulation which relies on the reduction to the 1-Lipschitz continuous case by using a suitable family of geodesics for the asymmetric Hausdorff-like distance called excess.
Keywords: Evolution variational inequalities, functions of bounded variation, sweeping processes, convex sets, retraction, geodesics with respect to the excess.
