    • Fixed point theory for Mönch-type maps defined on closed subsets of Fréchet spaces: the projective limit approach 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O'Regan, Donal; Dshalalow, Jewgeni H. (2005)
      New Leray-Schauder alternatives are presented for Mönch-type maps defined between Fréchet spaces. The proof relies on viewing a Fréchet space as the projective limit of a sequence of Banach spaces.
