Variational principles with generalized distances and applications to behavioral sciences

This paper has a two-fold focus on proving that the quasimetric and the weak $\tau$-distance versions of the Ekeland variational principle are equivalent in the sense that one implies the other and on presenting the need of such extensions for possible applications in the formation and break of workers hiring and firing routines.

An induction theorem and nonlinear regularity models

A general nonlinear regularity model for a set-valued mapping $F:X\times\R_+\rightrightarrows Y$, where $X$ and $Y$ are metric spaces, is considered using special iteration procedures, going back to Banach, Schauder, Lusternik and Graves. Namely, we revise the \emph{induction theorem} from Khanh, \emph{J. Math. Anal. Appl.}, 118 (1986) and employ it to obtain basic estimates for studying … Read more
