Monotone and Accretive Vector Fields on Riemannian Manifolds

The relationship between monotonicity and accretivity on Riemannian manifolds is studied in this paper and both concepts are proved to be equivalent in Hadamard manifolds. As a consequence an iterative method is obtained for approximating singularities of Lipschitz continuous, strongly monotone mappings. We also establish the equivalence between the strong convexity of functions and the strong monotonicity of its subdifferentials on Riemannian manifolds. These results are then applied to solve the minimization of convex functions on Riemannian manifolds.
