Multivalued Homotopy on an Ordered Set, Fixed and Coincidence Points of Mappings, and Applications in Game Theory
- 8 Downloads
The article develops results of the authors’ previous papers on the topic. The notion of the homotopy of a multivalued mapping of an ordered set is introduced. We study the problem as to whether the existence of a fixed point (or a coincidence point) is preserved under multivalued homotopies of a multivalued mapping (or a pair of multivalued mappings). An application of some of the authors’ previous results on fixed points in game theory is considered.
