Definition B.1. A family F of functions from R
n
to R
is said to be equicon-
tinuous at a point x R
n
if for every ε > 0 there exists a δ > 0 such that
kf(x) f(y)k < ε for all f F and all y such that kx yk < δ. The family
is equicontinuous if it is equicontinuous at each point of R
n
.
Definition B.2. A collection C = {C
1
, C
2
, . . .} of subsets of K R
n
is said
to have the finite intersection property if every finite subcollectio n of C has
nonempty intersection, that is, for every finite collection {C
1
, C
2
, . . . , C
m
} of
C we have

Theorem B .1. A subset K of R
n
is compact if and only if every collection
of closed sets in K having the finite intersection proper ty has a nonempty
intersection.
Theorem B .2 (Brouwer’s Fixed Point Theorem). Let B be a closed ball in
R
n
and T : B B be continuous. Then T admits at least one fixed po int.
Definition B.3. Let K be a nonempty convex subset of R
n
. A set-valued map
P : K 2
K
is said to be a KKM-map if for every finite subset {x

}
of K,
co{x

where co{x

The following Fan-KKM theorem and the Browder-type fixed point theo-
rem for se t- valued maps w ill be the key too ls to establish existence results for
solutions o f nonsmooth vector var iational-like inequalities.
Theorem B.3 (Fan-KKM Theorem). [71] Let K be a nonempty convex sub-
set of R
n
and P : K 2
K
be a KKM-map such that P (x) is clo sed for all
x K, and P (x) is compact fo r at least one x K. Then,

Theorem B.4. [15] Let K be a nonempty convex subset of R
n
and P, Q :
K 2
K
be two set-valued maps. Assume that the following conditions hold:
(i) For each x K, coP (x) Q(x) and P (x) is nonempty;
(ii) For each y K, P

(y) = {x K : y P (x)} is open in K;

(iii) If K is not compact, assume that there exist a nonempty compact convex
subset B of K and a nonempty compact subset D of K such that for
each x K \ D there exists ˜y B such that ˜y P (x).
Then, there exists ¯x K such that ¯x Q(¯x).
Theorem B.5. Let K be a nonempty convex subset of R
n
and P : K 2
K
a set-valued map. Assume that the following conditions hold:
(i) for all x K, P (x) is convex;
(ii) for each finite subset A of K and for a ll y co(A), P
1
(y) co(A) is
open in co(A);
(iii) for each finite subset A of K and all x, y co(A) and every sequence
{x

} in K converging to x such that λy + (1 λ)x / P (x

) for all
m N and all λ [0, 1], we have y / P (x);
(iv) there exist a nonempty compact subset D of K a nd an element ˜y D
such that ˜y P (x) for all x K \ D;
(v) for all x D, P (x) is nonempty.
Then, there exists ˆx K such that ˆx P (ˆx).
Theorem B .6 (Kakutani). [119] Let K be a nonempty compact convex sub-
set of R
n
and P : K 2
K
be a set-valued map such that for each x K,
P (x) is nonempty, compact, and conve x. Then P has a fixed point, that is,
there exists ¯x K such that ¯x P (¯x).
Theorem B.7 (Kneser). [131] Let K be a nonempty convex subset of R
n

D be a nonempty compact convex subset of R
