© 2015, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. We present necessary and sufficient conditions for a monotone bifunction to be maximally monotone, based on a recent characterization of maximally monotone operators. These conditions state the existence of solutions to equilibrium problems obtained by perturbing the defining bifunction in a suitable way.
