Global Stability Results for the Weak Vector Variational Inequality

  • Y. H. Cheng
  • D. L. ZhuEmail author


In this paper, we consider the global stability of solutions of a Weak Vector Variational Inequality in a finite-dimensional Euclidean space. Upper semi-continuity of the solution set mapping is established. And by a scalarization method, we derive a sufficient condition that guarantees the lower semi-continuity of the solution set mapping for the Weak Vector Variational Inequality


Lower semi-continuity Stability Strictly pseudo-monotone function Upper semi-continuity Weak vector variational inequality
