# Schauder fixed-point theorem

Schauder fixed-point theorem The Schauder fixed-point theorem is an extension of the Brouwer fixed-point theorem to topological vector spaces, which may be of infinite dimension. It asserts that if {displaystyle K} is a nonempty convex closed subset of a Hausdorff topological vector space {displaystyle V} and {displaystyle T} is a continuous mapping of {displaystyle K} into itself such that {displaystyle T(K)} is contained in a compact subset of {displaystyle K} , then {displaystyle T} has a fixed point.

A consequence, called Schaefer's fixed-point theorem, is particularly useful for proving existence of solutions to nonlinear partial differential equations. Schaefer's theorem is in fact a special case of the far reaching Leray–Schauder theorem which was proved earlier by Juliusz Schauder and Jean Leray. The statement is as follows: Let {displaystyle T} be a continuous and compact mapping of a Banach space {displaystyle X} into itself, such that the set {displaystyle {xin X_x=lambda Tx{mbox{ for some }}0leq lambda leq 1}} is bounded. Then {displaystyle T} has a fixed point.

His conjecture for the general case was published in the Scottish book. In 1934, Tychonoff proved the theorem for the case when K is a compact convex subset of a locally convex space. This version is known as the Schauder–Tychonoff fixed-point theorem. B. V. Singbal proved the theorem for the more general case where K may be non-compact; the proof can be found in the appendix of Bonsall's book (see references).
