A Continuous Extension that Preserves Concavity, Monotonicity and Lipschitz Continuity
The following is proven here: let W : X Ã C −→ R, where X is convex, be a continuous and bounded function such that for each y ∈ C, the function W (Â·, y) : X −→ R is concave (resp. strongly concave; resp. Lipschitzian with constant M; resp. monotone; resp. strictly monotone) and let Y ⊇ C. If C is compact, then there exists a continuous extension of W , U : X Ã Y −→ Â£infXÃC W, supXÃC W Â¤, such that for each y ∈ Y , the function U (Â·, y) : X −→ R is concave (resp. strongly concave; resp. Lipschitzian with constant My ; resp. monotone; resp. strictly monotone).
