Approximating Values of MinSup Problems with Quasi-variational Inequality Constraints
AbstractWe consider a two-stage model where a leader, according to its risk-averse proneness, solves a MinSup problem with constraints corresponding to the reaction sets of a follower and defined by the solutions of a quasi-variational inequality (i.e. a variational inequality having constraint sets depending on its own solutions) which appear in concrete economic models such as social and economic networks, financial derivative models, transportation network congestion and traffic equilibrium. In general the infimal value of a MinSup (or the maximal value of a MaxInf) problem with quasi-variational inequality constraints is not stable under perturbations in the sense that the sequence of optimal values for the perturbed problems may not converge to the optimal value of the original problem even in presence of nice data. Thus, we introduce different types of approximate values for this problem, we investigate their asymptotical behavior under perturbations and we emphasized the results concerning MinSup problems with variational inequality constraints as well results holding under stronger assumptions that can be more easily employed in applications.
