Abstract

Given f : R + n → R n , the complementarity problem is to find a solution to x ≥ 0, f(x) ≥ 0, and 〈 x, f(x) 〉 = 0. Under the condition that f is continuously differentiable, we prove that for a generic set of such an f , the problem has a discrete solution set. Also, under a set of generic nondegeneracy conditions and a condition that implies existence, we prove that the problem has an odd number of solutions.
