We consider a differential quasivariational inequality for which we state and prove the continuous dependence of the solution with respect to the data. This convergence result allows us to prove the existence of at least one optimal pair for an associated control problem. Finally, we illustrate our abstract results in the study of a free boundary problem which describes the equilibrium of a viscoelastic body in frictionless contact with a foundation made of a rigid body covered by a rigid-elastic layer.

Joint work with D.A. Tarzia (CONICET-Depto de Matemática, FCE-Universidad Austral, Paraguay 1950, 2000 Rosario, Argentina) and M. Sofonea (Département de Mathématiques, Université de Perpignan Via Domitia, 52 Avenue Paul Alduy, 66860 Perpignan, France).
