The SOC-monotone function (respectively, SOC-convex function) is a scalar valued function that induces a map to preserve the monotone order (respectively, the convex order), when imposed on the spectral factorization of vectors associated with second-order cones (SOCs) in general Hilbert spaces. In this paper, we provide the sufficient and necessary characterizations for the two classes of functions, and particularly establish that the set of continuous SOC-monotone (respectively, SOC-convex) functions coincides with that of continuous matrix monotone (respectively, matrix convex) functions of order 2.
We introduce the Jordan product associated with the second-order cone K into the real Hilbert space H, and then define a one-parametric class of complementarity functions t on H H with the parameter t[0, 2). We show that the squared norm of t with t(0, 2) is a continuously F (rchet)-differentiable merit function. By this, the second-order cone complementarity problem (SOCCP) in H can be converted into an unconstrained smooth minimization problem involving this class of merit functions, and furthermore, under the monotonicity assumption, every stationary point of this minimization problem is shown to be a solution of the SOCCP.
We establish the no trade principle, ie, the no trade theorem and its converse, for any dual pair of bet and extended belief spaces, defined on a given measurable space. A key condition is that, except perhaps one of the agents, everyone else has (weak*) compact sets of beliefs. We find out that in most of the models of uncertainty adopted in the economic literature, roughly speaking, the epistemic statement that an agent has a compact set of beliefs is equivalent to the economic statement that he has an open cone of positive bets. This improves our understanding of what compactness actually means within an economic context.
In this note, we will discuss how to relate an operator ideal on Banach spaces to the sequential structures it defines. Concrete examples of ideals of compact, weakly compact, completely continuous, Banach-Saks and weakly Banach-Saks operators will be demonstrated.
