We consider elliptic variational inequalities generated by obstacle type problems with thin obstacles. For this class of problems, we deduce estimates of the distance (measured in terms of the natural energy norm) between the exact solution and any function that satisfies the boundary condition and is admissible with respect to the obstacle condition (i.e., they are valid for any approximation regardless of the method by which it was found). Computation of the estimates does not require knowledge of the exact solution and uses only the problem data and an approximation. The estimates provide guaranteed upper bounds of the error (error majorants) and vanish if and only if the approximation coincides with the exact solution. In the last section, the efficiency of error majorants is confirmed by an example, where the exact solution is known.

Apushkinskaya, Darya E.; Repin, Sergey I. (Pleiades Publishing, 2020)The paper is concerned with an elliptic variational inequality associated with a free boundary obstacle problem for the biharmonic operator. We study the bounds of the difference between the exact solution (minimizer) of ...
Guarino Lo Bianco, Serena; La Manna, Domenico Angelo; Velichkov, Bozhidar (Les Éditions de l'École polytechnique, 2021)We study for the first time a two-phase free boundary problem in which the solution satisfies a Robin boundary condition. We consider the case in which the solution is continuous across the free boundary and we prove an ...
