Applications of measures of weak noncompactness and some classes of operators in the theory of functional equations in the Lebesgue space. (English) Zbl 0894.47040

The author shows that, for a subset \(X\) of \(L_1\) which is compact in measure, the continuity, demicontinuity, and weak sequential continuity of \(T: X\to X\) are equivalent. This makes it possible to enlarge the applicability of fixed point theorems involving weakly condensing operators. The author also illustrates this by means of applications to functional equations and Uryson integral equations.
