An axiomatic approach to a coincidence index for noncompact function pairs

Martin Väth


We prove that there is a coincidence index for the inclusion
$F(x)\in\Phi(x)$ when $\Phi$ is convex-valued and satisfies certain
compactness assumptions on countable sets. For $F$ we assume only that it
provides a coincidence index for single-valued finite-dimensional maps
(e.g. $F$ is a Vietoris map). For the special case $F={\rm id}$, the obtained
fixed point index is defined if $\Phi$ is countably condensing;
the assumptions in this case are even weaker than in
[M. Väth, < i> Fixed point theorems and fixed point index for countably condensing maps< /i> ,
Topol. Methods Nonlinear Anal. < b> 13< /b> (1999), 341–363].
