Abstract
This paper generalizes a foundational quasivariationalinequality by relaxing the (0diagonal) concavity condition. The approach adopted in this paper is based on continuous selectiontype arguments and hence it is quite different from the approach used in the literature. Thus it enables us to prose the existence of equilibrium of the constrained noncooperative games without assuming the (quasi) convexity of loss functions.
