A Fixed-Component Point Theorem and Applications
- 64 Downloads
We prove a topologically based characterization of the existence of fixed-component points for an arbitrary family of set-valued maps defined on a product set by using topologically based structures, without linear or convexity structures. Then, applying this general result, we derive sufficient conditions for the existence of coincidence-component points of families of set-valued maps and intersection points of families of sets, as examples for many other important points in nonlinear analysis. Applications to systems of variational relations and abstract economies are provided as examples for other optimization-related problems.
