Projection iterative methods for solving some systems of general nonconvex variational inequalities. (English) Zbl 1225.49017

Summary: In this article, we introduce and consider a new system of general nonconvex variational inequalities involving four different operators. We use the projection operator technique to establish the equivalence between the system of general nonconvex variational inequalities and a fixed-point problem. This alternative equivalent formulation is used to suggest and analyse some new explicit iterative methods for this system of nonconvex variational inequalities. We also study the convergence analysis of the new iterative method under certain mild conditions. Since this new system includes the system of nonconvex variational inequalities, variational inequalities and related optimization problems as special cases, results obtained in this article continue to hold for these problems. Our results can be viewed as a refinement and an improvement of the previously known results for variational inequalities.
