In this work we introduce for extended real valued functions, defined on a Banach space X, the concept of K directionally Lipschitzian behavior, where K is a bounded subset of X. For different types of sets K (e.g., zero, singleton, or compact), the K directionally Lipschitzian behavior recovers well-known concepts in variational analysis (locally(More)
We prove in the general setting of lower semicontinuous functions on Banach spaces the relation between the Rockafellar directional derivative and the mixed lower limit of the lower Dini derivatives. As a byproduct we derive the famous inclusions of tangent cones of closed sets in Banach spaces. The results are established using as principal tool(More)
This paper studies, for a differential variational inequality involving a locally prox-regular set, a regularization process with a family of classical differential equations whose solutions converge to the solution of the differential variational inequality. The concept of local prox-regularity will be termed in a quantified way, as (r, α)-prox-regularity.
In this article we discuss the differential inclusion known as state dependent sweeping process for a class of prox-regular non-convex sets. We associate with any state dependent sweeping process with such sets an unconstraint differential inclusion whose any solution is a solution of the state sweeping process too. We prove a theorem on the existence of a(More)
