Registered author(s):


    In this paper we develop a new and efficient method for variational inequality with Lipschitz continuous strongly monotone operator. Our analysis is based on a new strongly convex merit function. We apply a variant of the developed scheme for solving quasivariational inequality. As a result, we significantly improve the standard sufficient condition for existence and uniqueness of their solutions. Moreover, we get a new numerical scheme, which rate of convergence is much higher than that of the straightforward gradient method.
