Theorem 1 of , a minimax result for functions $f:X\times Y\to {\bf R}$, where $Y$ is a real interval, was partially extended to the case where $Y$ is a convex set in a Hausdorff topological vector space (, Theorem 3.2). In doing that, a key tool was a partial extension of the same result to the case where $Y$ is a convex set in ${\bf R}^n$ (, Theorem 4.2). In the present paper, we first obtain a full extension of the result in  by means of a new proof fully based on the use of…

Another multiplicity result for the periodic solutions of certain systems
In this paper, we deal with a problem of the type $$\cases{(\phi(u'))'=\nabla_xF(t,u) & in [0,T]\cr & \cr u(0)=u(T)\ , \hskip 3pt u'(0)=u'(T)\ ,\cr}$$ where, in particular, $\phi$ is a
Applying twice a minimax theorem
Here is one of the results obtained in this paper: Let $X, Y$ be two convex sets each in a real vector space, let $J:X\times Y\to {\bf R}$ be convex and without global minima in $X$ and concave in
An Invitation to the Study of a Uniqueness Problem
In this very short paper, we provide a strong motivation for the study of the following problem: given a real normed space $E$, a closed, convex, unbounded set $X\subseteq E$ and a function $f:X\to A remark on variational inequalities in small balls • B.

In this paper, we establish two minimax theorems for functions $f:X\times I\to {\bf R}$, where $I$ is a real interval, without assuming that $f(x,\cdot)$ is quasi-concave. Also, some related
Miscellaneous applications of certain minimax theorems. I
Here is one of the results of this paper (with the convention ${{1}\over {0}}=+\infty$): Let $X$ be a real Hilbert space and let $J:X\to {\bf R}$ be a $C^1$ functional, with compact derivative, such

In this work, we characterize the existence of a solution for a certain variational inequality by means of a classical minimax theorem. In addition, we propose a numerical algorithm for the solution
On the Generalization of a Multiplicity Result
In this work, we shifted a recent multiplicity result by B. Ricceri from a Hilbert space to a Banach space setting by making use of a duality mapping relative to some increasing function. Using the
Hahn-Banach and Sandwich Theorems for Equivariant Vector Lattice-Valued Operators and Applications
Abstract We prove Hahn-Banach, sandwich and extension theorems for vector lattice-valued operators, equivariant with respect to a given group G of homomorphisms. As applications and consequences, we
