A geometric approach to accretivity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We establish a connection between generalized accretive operators introduced by F. E. Browder and the theory of quasisymmetric mappings in Banach spaces pioneered by J. Väisälä. The interplay of the two fields allows for geometric proofs of continuity, differentiability, and surjectivity of generalized accretive operators.
