TITLE : “Applications of Hahn- Banach Theorem to Sequence Spaces and Variational Inequality.”
Date & Time : September 20, 2023, 10:00 AM
Venue : # 102, CDS Seminar Hall
Application of the Hahn-Banach Theorem to the space of bounded sequences with a specific sublinear functional p defined on it gives rise to linear functionals, which are dominated by p and are extensions of limits of convergent sequences. These are called Banach Limits, which were studied by Banach (1932), and their uniqueness is called almost convergence and was characterized by Lonentz .
In the present lecture, we will discuss about the absolute analog of almost convergence, which generalizes LP spaces. The two concepts Variational Inequality and complementarily problems are essentially the same concepts which are studied by two different groups of mathematicians: applied mathematics on one hand and operations researchers on the other hand. The proof existence of the variational inequality problem uses Hanh- Banach Theorem or Fixed-Point theorems. In this lecture, we will discuss about the existence of solutions of the complementary problem, under the most general conditions on the operator and the cone.
