Some random fixed point theorems for condensing and nonexpansive operators. (English) Zbl 0716.47029

Let C be a nonempty closed bounded convex subset of a reflexive Banach space X. C is said to have the random fixed point property (RFPP) for nonexpansive random operators if, for any measurable space (\(\Omega\),\(\Sigma\)) with \(\Sigma\) a sigma algebra of subsets of \(\Omega\), every nonexpansive random operator T: \(\Omega\times C\to C\) has a random fixed point (i.e., there exists a measurable operator x: \(\Omega\to C\) such that \(f(\omega,x(\omega))=x(\omega)\) for each \(\omega\in \Omega)\). The author first takes up the question of whether C has the RFPP from random operators when C has the FPP for nonexpansive mappings. He shows that such is the case if either
(i) \(\Sigma\) is closed under the Suslin operation; or
(ii) X is strictly convex and I-T is demiclosed at zero.
He then derives some random fixed point theorems for condensing and nonexpansive operators which are non self-mappings.
