Abstract
This paper gives some very general results on the generalized quasivariationallike inequality problem. Since the problem includes all the existing extensions of the classical variational inequality problem as special cases, our existence theorems extend the previous results in the literature by relaxing both continuity and concavity of the functional. The approach adopted in this paper is based on continuous selectiontype arguments and thus is quite different from the Berge Maximum Theorem or HahnBanach Theorem approach used in the literature.
