We introduce the notion of variational (semi-)∈strict quasimonotonicity for a multivalued operator T ∈: X * relative to a nonempty subset A of X which is not necessarily included in the domain of T. We use this notion to characterize the subdifferentials of continuous (semi-)∈strictly quasiconvex functions. The proposed definition is a relaxation of the standard definition of (semi-)∈strict quasimonotonicity, the latter being appropriate only for operators with nonempty values. Thus, the derived results are extensions to the continuous case of the corresponding results for locally Lipschitz functions. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
