Rockafellar’s celebrated theorem based on \(A\)-maximal monotonicity design. (English) Zbl 1148.47039

The author extends a well-known result on the proximal point method for finding zeroes of maximal monotone operators [cf.R.T.Rockafellar, SIAM J. Control Optimization 14, 877–898 (1976; Zbl 0358.90053)] to the general framework for \(A\)-maximal monotonicity (also referred to as the \(A\)-monotonicity framework in literature). The latter concept generalizes the theory of set-valued maximal monotone mappings, including the notion of \(H\)-maximal monotonicity (also referred to as \(H\)-monotonicity).
