Abstract: In this paper we shall study quadrature domains for the class of subharmonic functions. By using the theory of variational inequalities, we shall give a new proof of the existence and uniqueness theorem. As an application, we deal with Hele-Shaw flows with a free boundary and show that their two weak solutions, one of which was defined by the author using quadrature domains and the other was defined by Gustafsson [3] using variational inequalities, are identical with each other.
