Our present article is motivated by the study of the probability distribution of the solution of a stochastic variational inequality modeling an elasto-plastic oscillator excited by a filtered noise. We introduce a class of partial differential equations (PDEs) with nonlocal Dirichlet conditions and we establish the unique existence of solutions of these PDEs by extending the method developed in [A. Bensoussan and J. Turi, Applied and Numerical Partial Differential Equations, Comput. Methods Appl. Sci. 15, Springer, New York, 2009, pp. 9-23]. A major mathematical challenge here is to carry out the analysis of boundary value problems for elliptic equations in dimension two rather than that in dimension one.", keywords = "Boundary value problem, Elasto-plastic oscillator, Variational inequality", author = "A.
