\(L^{\infty }\)-asymptotic behavior for a finite element approximation in parabolic quasi-variational inequalities related to impulse control problem. (English) Zbl 1211.65083
Summary: The parabolic quasi-variational inequalities are transformed into a noncoercive elliptic quasi-variational inequalities. A new iterative discrete algorithm is proposed to show the existence and uniqueness, and a simple proof to asymptotic behavior in uniform norm is also given using the theta time scheme combined with a finite element spatial approximation. The proposed approach stands on a discrete \(L^{\infty }\)-stability property with respect to the right-hand side and obstacle defined as an impulse control problem.
