Metric regularity of composition set-valued mappings: metric setting and coderivative conditions

The paper concerns a new method to obtain a direct proof of the openness at linear rate/metric regularity of composite set-valued maps on metric spaces by the unification and refinement of several methods developed somehow separately in several works of the authors. In fact, this work is a synthesis and a precise specialization to a … Read more

Slopes of multifunctions and extensions of metric regularity

This article aims to demonstrate how the definitions of slopes can be extended to multi-valued mappings between metric spaces and applied for characterizing metric regularity. Several kinds of local and nonlocal slopes are defined and several metric regularity properties for set-valued mappings between metric spaces are investigated.

Metric regularity of the sum of multifunctions and applications

In this work, we use the theory of error bounds to study of metric regularity of the sum of two multifunctions, as well as some important properties of variational systems. We use an approach based on the metric regularity of epigraphical multifunctions. Our results subsume some recent results by Durea and Strugariu Citation XLIM (UMR-CNRS … Read more

Implicit Multifunction Theorems in complete metric spaces

In this paper, we establish some new characterizations of the metric regularity of implicit multifunctions in complete metric spaces by using the lower semicontinuous envelopes of the distance functions for set-valued mappings. Through these new characterizations it is possible to investigate implicit multifunction theorems based on coderivatives and on contingent derivatives as well as the … Read more

Stability of error bounds for convex constraint systems in Banach spaces

This paper studies stability of error bounds for convex constraint systems in Banach spaces. We show that certain known sufficient conditions for local and global error bounds actually ensure error bounds for the family of functions being in a sense small perturbations of the given one. A single inequality as well as semi-infinite constraint systems … Read more

Stability of error bounds for semi-infinite convex constraint systems

In this paper, we are concerned with the stability of the error bounds for semi-infinite convex constraint systems. Roughly speaking, the error bound of a system of inequalities is said to be stable if all its “small” perturbations admit a (local or global) error bound. We first establish subdifferential characterizations of the stability of error … Read more
