In this work, we give a characterization of the existence of minimal elements in partially ordered sets in terms of fixed point of multivalued maps. This characterization shows that the assumptions in Caristi’s fixed point theorem can, a priori, be weakened. Finally, we discuss Kirk’s problem on an extension of Caristi’s theorem and prove a new positive… (More)
