Abstract

We show that the weak Ekeland variational principle is itself derivative of a geometric principle for Lipschitz real-valued functions. We use this principle to directly obtain an omnibus result regarding the nonempty intersection of a decreasing sequence of nonempty closed sets. Both the weak Ekeland principle and our principle for Lipschitz functions are characteristic of completeness of the underlying metric. We also characterize a class of metric spaces lying strictly between the compact and complete metric spaces by an Ekeland-type principle: the class of metric spaces TeX Embedding failed! on which each continuous functions with values in an arbitrary metric space is uniformly continuous.
