# The pseudomonotone polar for multivalued operators

@article{Bueno2016ThePP, title={The pseudomonotone polar for multivalued operators}, author={Orestes Bueno and John Edwin Cotrina}, journal={Optimization}, year={2016}, volume={66}, pages={691 - 703} }

In this work, we study the pseudomonotonicity of multivalued operators from the point of view of polarity, in an analogous way as the well-known monotone polar due to Martínez-Legaz and Svaiter, and the quasimonotone polar recently introduced by Bueno and Cotrina. We show that this new polar, adapted for pseudomonotonicity, possesses analogous properties to the monotone and quasimonotone polar, among which are a characterization of pseudomonotonicity, maximality and pre-maximality. Furthermore…

A new notion of "adjusted sublevel set" of a function is introduced and studied, which is both quasi-monotone and, in the case of quasi-convex functions, cone upper-semicontinuous.
