Title Variational Convergence Of Bifunctions: Motivating Applications.
Publication Date 2011
Media Count 32p
Personal Author A. Jofre R. J. Wets
Abstract It s shown that a number of variational problems can be cast as finding the maxinfpoints (or minsup-points) of bifunctions (= bivariate functions). These variational problems include: linear and nonlinear complementarity problems, fixed points, variational inequalities, inclusions, noncooperative games, Walras and Nash equilibrium problems. One can then appeal to the theory of lopsided convergence for bifunctions to derive stability results for each one of these variational problems.
