Well-posedness of mixed variational inequalities, inclusion problems and fixed point problems. (English) Zbl 1149.49009

Summary: We generalize the concept of well-posedness to a mixed variational inequality and give some characterizations of its well-posedness. Under suitable conditions, we prove that the well-posedness of a mixed variational inequality is equivalent to the well-posedness of a corresponding inclusion problem. We also discuss the relations between the well-posedness of a mixed variational inequality and the well-posedness of a fixed point problem. Finally, we derive some conditions under which a mixed variational inequality is well-posed.
