Tom Gustafsson, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Finite Element Methods for Contact Problems" on 20 June 2018 at 12 noon at the Aalto University School of Science. In the dissertation,  the discretization of variational inequalities using mixed finite element methods is studied. A special focus is on stabilized finite element methods and their reinterpretation as Nitsche-type formulations.
