Remarks on multifunctions with convex graph. (English) Zbl 0648.46010
The following result is proved:
Theorem 1. Let X, Y be two real topological vector spaces; X a non-empty open convex subset of E; F a lower semicontinuous multifunction from X into Y, with non-empty closed values and convex graph (or even midpoint convex graph). Then, the graph of F is closed in $$X\times Y.$$
Applying Theorem 1, we also get the following
Theorem 2. Let X, Y be two real Banach spaces and let F be a multifunction from X onto Y, with non-empty values and convex graph. Then, the following assertions are equivalent:
(a) The multifunction F is lower semicontinuous and closed-valued.
(b) The graph of the multifunction F is closed in $$X\times Y.$$
(c) The multifunction F is open and, for each $$y\in Y$$, the set $$F^ - (y)$$ is closed in X.
