On the generalized monotonicity of variational inequalities. (English) Zbl 1122.49006

Summary: Three new classes of generalized monotone operators are introduced: the relaxed \(\mu \) pseudomonotone operator, relaxed \(\mu \) quasimonotone operator and densely relaxed pseudomonotone operator. The relations between these three classes and the relations between them and some other well known classes of generalized monotone operators are discussed in detail. Various existence results for variational inequalities in normed spaces are derived. The results generalize some known results.
