Abstract: Granas and Dugundji obtained the following generalization of the Knaster-Kuratowski-Mazurkiewicz theorem.

Let $ X$ be a subset of a topological vector space $ E$ and let $ G$ be a set-valued map from $ X$ into $ E$ such that for each finite subset $ \{ {x_1}, \ldots ,{x_n}\} $ of $ X,co\{ {x_1}, \ldots ,{x_n}\} \subset \cup _{i = 1}^nG{x_i}$ and for each $ x \in X,Gx$ is finitely closed, i.e., for any finite-dimensional subspace $ L$ of $ E,Gx \cap L$ is closed in the Euclidean topology of $ L$. Then $ \{ Gx:x \in X\} $ has the finite intersection property.

By relaxing, among others, the condition that $ X$ is a subset of $ E$, we obtain a further generalization of the theorem and show some of its applications.
