Abstract

Ky Fan's minimax inequality is an important tool in nonlinear functional analysis and its applications, e.g. game theory and economic theory. Since Fan gave his minimax inequality in [2], various extensions of this interesting result have been obtained (see [4,11] and the references therein). Using Fan's minimax inequality, Ha [6] obtained a non-compact version of Sion's minimax theorem in topological vector spaces, and next Geraghty-Lin [3], Granas-Liu [4], Shih-Tan [11], Simons [12], Lin-Quan [10], Park-Bae-Kang [17], Bae-Kim-Tan [1] further generalize Fan's minimax theorem in more general settings. In [9], using the concept of submaximum, Komiya proved a topological minimax theorem which also generalized Sion's minimax theorem and another minimax theorem of Ha in [5] without using linear structures. And next Lin-Quan [10] further generalizes his result to two function versions and non-compact topological settings.
