Fixed point theorems for pointtoset mappings Ko, HweiMei
Abstract
Let f be a pointtoset mapping from a topological X space X into the family 2(X) of nonempty closed subsets of X . K. Fan [13] proved that if X is a Hausdorff locally convex linear topological space and K is a nonempty compact convex subset of X , then an upper semicontinuous mapping (abbreviated by u.s.c.) f from K into k(K), the family of nonempty closed convex subsets of K, has a fixed point in K . Our main object in this work is to weaken "compactness" of K to "weak compactness" and prove a fixed point theorem for a mapping f on K into certain subfamily of 2(K). The definition of convex function has been extended to pointtoset mappings in Chapter I. Let I denote the identity mapping on a Banach space X. Assume that If is a convex mapping on a weakly compact closed convex subset K of X. Then any of the following conditions implies the existence of the fixed point of f on K: (1) f : K → 2(K) is u.s.c. and [formula omitted] d(x,f(x)) = 0. (2) f : K → 2(K) is u.s.c. and is asymptotically regular (see definition 1.3) at some point in K . (3) f : K → cc(K) is nonexpansive and the Banach space X has a strictly convex norm. Moreover, it has been shown that if f : K → cpt(K) (see definition 0.3) is nonexpansive and If is strictly convex (see definition 1.5) on K, then K has a fixed point on K .

Description 
Let f be a pointtoset mapping from a topological X
space X into the family 2(X) of nonempty closed subsets of X . K. Fan [13] proved that if X is a Hausdorff locally convex linear topological space and K is a nonempty compact convex subset of X , then an upper semicontinuous mapping (abbreviated by u.s.c.) f from K into k(K), the family of nonempty closed convex subsets of K, has a fixed point in K . Our main object in this work is to weaken "compactness"
of K to "weak compactness" and prove a fixed point theorem for a mapping f on K into certain subfamily of 2(K).
The definition of convex function has been extended to pointtoset mappings in Chapter I. Let I denote the identity mapping on a Banach space X. Assume that If is a convex mapping on a weakly compact closed convex subset K of X. Then any of the following conditions implies the existence of the fixed point of f on K:
(1) f : K → 2(K) is u.s.c. and [formula omitted] d(x,f(x)) = 0.
(2) f : K → 2(K) is u.s.c. and is asymptotically regular (see definition 1.3) at some point in K .
(3) f : K → cc(K) is nonexpansive and the Banach space X has a strictly convex norm.
Moreover, it has been shown that if f : K → cpt(K) (see definition 0.3) is nonexpansive and If is strictly convex (see definition 1.5) on K, then K has a fixed point on K . Finally, an effort has been made to investigate the properties of the set of fixed points of a pointtoset mappings.
In Chapter II, we have confined ourselves to a reflexive Banach space X which has a weakly continuous duality map J (see definition 2.3) and X has a strictly convex norm. On such a special space we are able to prove that a nonexpansive mapping f : X → cc(X) such that f(x)ʗ K, for any x in a closed convex bounded subset K of X , has a fixed point. As an application of this result we prove a fixed point theorem for semicontractive mappings (see definition 2.7). F : X → cc(X) such that F(x)ʗK for any x ε K , where K and X are the same as above. .
