In this paper, we apply a new fixed-point theorem and use various monotonicity and some coercivity conditions to establish equilibrium theorems for multimaps. As a simple consequence, we give a unified approach to vectorial equilibria for multimaps. We show that, from our results, some well-known classical results, such as the Ky Fan minimax inequality theorem and the Browder and Hartman-Stampacchia theorems concerning the existence for variational inequalities, can be derived easily.
