dc.description.abstractLet 𝑋 be a real locally uniformly convex reflexive Banach space with locally uniformly convex dual space π‘‹βˆ—. Let 𝑇 : 𝑋 βŠ‡ 𝐷(𝑇)β†’ 2𝑋 βˆ— and 𝐴 : 𝑋 βŠ‡ 𝐷(𝐴) β†’ 2𝑋 βˆ— be maximal monotone operators.The maximality of the sum of two maximal monotone operators has been an open problem for many years. In this paper, new maximality theorems are proved for 𝑇 + 𝐴 under weaker sufficient conditions. These theorems improved the well-known maximality results of Rockafellar who used condition ∘ 𝐷(𝑇) ∩ 𝐷(𝐴) =ΜΈ 0 and Browder and Hess who used the quasiboundedness of 𝑇 and condition 0 ∈ 𝐷(𝑇) ∩𝐷(𝐴). In particular, the maximality of 𝑇 + πœ•πœ™ is proved provided that ∘ 𝐷(𝑇) ∩ 𝐷(πœ™) =ΜΈ 0, where πœ™ : 𝑋 β†’ (βˆ’βˆž,∞] is a proper, convex, and lower semicontinuous function. Consequently, an existence theorem is proved addressing solvability of evolution type variational inequality problem for pseudomonotone perturbation of maximal monotone operator.en
