Abstract: In this paper we consider a parabolic hemivariational inequality with a nonmonotone multivalued boundary condition and with a time dependent pseudomonotone operator. We establish the existence of solutions for such inequality. Our proof is based on a known result on the surjectivity of operators of pseudomonotone type. We present an example of semipermeability heat conduction problem to which the result applies.

Keywords: Hemivariational inequalities, subdifferential, multifunction, nonconvex, semipermeability.
