Nash-type equilibria and periodic solutions to nonvariational systems


The paper deals with variational properties of xed points for contraction-type operators. Undersuitable conditions, the unique xed point of a vector-valued operator is a Nash-type equilibrium of thecorresponding energy functionals. This is achieved by an iterative scheme based on Ekeland’s variationalprinciple. An application to periodic solutions for second order dierential systems is given to illustratethe theory.
