In this paper, we investigate Egoroff’s theorem with respect to monotone set function, and show that a necessary and sufficient condition that Egoroff’s theorem remain valid for monotone set function is that the monotone set function fulfill condition (E). Therefore Egoroff’s theorem for non-additive measure is formulated in full generality.

This paper presents a Komlós theorem that extends to the case of the set-valued Henstock-Kurzweil-Pettis integral a result obtained by Balder and Hess (in the integrably bounded case) and also a result of Hess and Ziat (in the Pettis integrability setting). As applications, a solution to a best approximation problem is given, weak compactness results are deduced and, finally, an existence theorem for an integral inclusion involving the Henstock-Kurzweil-Pettis set-valued integral is obtained.

Let Y be a subgroup of an abelian group X and let T be a given collection of subsets of a linear space E over the rationals. Moreover, suppose that F is a subadditive set-valued function defined on X with values in T. We establish some conditions under which every additive selection of the restriction of F to Y can be extended to an additive selection of F. We also present some applications of results of this type to the stability of functional equations.

Using the Rådström-Hörmander theorem on embedding of the hyperspace of closed convex sets in a Banach space, we prove multivalued versions of some results known for real functions.

Continuous set-valued functions with convex images can be approximated by known positive operators of approximation, such as the Bernstein polynomial operators and the Schoenberg spline operators, with the usual sum between numbers replaced by the Minkowski sum of sets. Yet these operators fail to approximate set-valued functions with general sets as images. The Bernstein operators with growing degree, and the Schoenberg operators, when represented as spline subdivision schemes, converge to set-valued...

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 26E25, 41A35, 41A36, 47H04, 54C65.The paper is an updated survey of our work on the approximation of univariate set-valued functions by samples-based linear approximation operators, beyond the results reported in our previous overview. Our approach is to adapt operators for real-valued functions to set-valued functions, by replacing operations between numbers by operations between sets. For set-valued functions with compact convex images we use Minkowski...

To represent a set whose members are known partially, the graded ill-known set is proposed. In this paper, we investigate calculations of function values of graded ill-known sets. Because a graded ill-known set is characterized by a possibility distribution in the power set, the calculations of function values of graded ill-known sets are based on the extension principle but generally complex. To reduce the complexity, lower and upper approximations of a given graded ill-known set are used at the...

Let (X,∥·∥) and (Y,∥·∥) be two normed spaces and K be a convex cone in X. Let CC(Y) be the family of all non-empty convex compact subsets of Y. We consider the Nemytskiĭ operators, i.e. the composition operators defined by (Nu)(t) = H(t,u(t)), where H is a given set-valued function. It is shown that if the operator N maps the space $R{V}_{\phi \u2081}([a,b];K)$ into $R{W}_{\phi \u2082}([a,b];CC\left(Y\right))$ (both are spaces of functions of bounded φ-variation in the sense of Riesz), and if it is globally Lipschitz, then it has to be of the form H(t,u(t)) = A(t)u(t)...
