MATH-774                 Set-Valued Analysis


This course is devoted to a compressed and self-contained exposition of an important part of contemporary mathematics: set-valued analysis.The great attention is paid also to measurable set-valued functions, continuous, Lipschitz and some special types of selections, fixed point and coincidence theorems, covering set-valued maps, topological degree theory and differential inclusions.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply the theory of set-valued mappings, Upper and lower semicontinuous of set-valued maps, Hausdorff-Pompeiu distance. fixed point theorems, integral of set-valued functions, the theory of differential inclusions, selection theorems and measurable multifunctions.
