## Abstract

We study the system of generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems and prove a new existence result of its solutions by Kakutani-Fan-Glicksberg's fixed points theorem. As a special case, we also derive a new existence result of solutions to the generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems.

## 1. Introduction

The system of generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems generalizes the generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems, and the latter had been studied in [1–3]. In this paper, we study the system of generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems and prove a new existence result of its solutions by Kakutani-Fan-Glicksberg's fixed points theorem. For other existence results with respect to the system of generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems, we refer the reader to [4–6] and references therein.

If is a singleton, then the SGIVQIP coincides with the generalized implicit vector quasivariational inequality problems (briefly, GIVQIP). A GIVQIP is usually denoted by .

Throughout this paper, unless otherwise specified, assume that for each , is a nonempty convex compact subset of a Banach space is a Hausdorff topological vector space, and is a closed, convex, and pointed cone of with , where denotes the interior of .

## 3. Existence of Solutions to the SGIVQIP

Lemma 3.1.

Let be three Hausdorff topological spaces, a topological vector space, and a closed, convex, and pointed cone of . Let and be two set-valued maps. Assume that and

(1) is upper semicontinuous on with nonempty and compact values;

Then there exist open neighborhood of and open neighborhood of , and open neighborhood of such that whenever , ,

Proof.

The proof is finished.

By Lemma 3.1, we obtain the following result.

Theorem 3.2.

Consider an SGIVQIP . For each , assume that

(1) is continuous on with convex compact values and for each ;

(2) is upper semicontinuous on with nonempty and compact values;

Proof.

Step 1.

If , then there exists such that for each . By Lemma 3.1, there exist open neighborhood of and open neighborhood of , such that whenever . By (1), there exist such that , which implies that there exists a positive integer such that whenever . Thus we have whenever , a contradiction. This shows that is closed,that is, is open.

Without loss of generality, assume that .

Step 2.

We prove that for each is nonempty and convex.

For each , we have . By Lemma 3.1, there exists an open neighborhood of such that whenever , which implies that , that is, is open. By (4), it is easy to verify that is convex.

Since is convex and , then for each is nonempty and convex.

Step 3.

We prove that has a continuous selection .

whenever , which implies that , that is, is open. Hence, for each , the set is open.

By Lemma 2.4, has a continuous selection .

Step 4.

We prove that the SGIVQIP has a solution.

The proof is finished.

If is a singleton, we obtain the following existence result of solutions to the GIVQIP by Theorem 3.2.

Corollary 3.3.

Consider a GIVQIP . Assume that

(1) is continuous on with convex compact values and for each ;

(2) is upper semicontinuous on with nonempty and compact values;

Remark 3.4.

Theorem 3.2, Corollary 3.3, and each corresponding result in literatures [1–6] do not include each other as a special case.
