Some inf-sup and saddle point theorems are proved for functionsf: X×Y → IR (=reals). The general theorems weaken some of the convexity conditions that are usually imposed onX, Y, andf. Some special cases are considered — these results impose some convexity in the hypotheses but still treat situations not covered by classical theorems.
