About this book

The papers published in this volume focus on some of the most recent devel- ments in complementarity theory, variational principles, stability theory of fu- tional equations, nonsmooth optimization, and various other important topics of nonlinear analysis and optimization. This volume was initially planned to celebrate Professor George Isac’s 70th birthday by bringing together research scientists from mathematical domains which have long bene ted from Isac’s active research passion. Unfortunately, George Isac passed away in February 2009 at the age of 69. George Isac received his Ph. D. in 1973 from the Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy of Sciences. He made outstanding contributions in s- eral branches of pure and applied mathematics, including complementarity theory, variational inequalities, xed point theory, scalar and vector optimization, theory of cones, eigenvalue problems, convex analysis, variational principles and regulari- tion methods, as well as a number of other topics. In his long and outstanding career, he wrote more than 200 papers and 13 books. Professor Isac was an avid traveler who visited more than 70 universities around the globe and delivered approximately 180 research presentations. He also authored seven books on poetry. During his s- enti c career he collaborated with numerous mathematicians. His research papers contain very deep, original and beautiful results. Through his signi cant contri- tions, he earned a distinguished position and became an internationally renowned leading scholar in his research elds.
