Abstract: The solvability of the equation $ Au - Tu + Cu = f$ is studied under various assumptions of monotonicity and compactness on the operators A, T, and C, which map subsets of a reflexive Banach space X into its dual space. It is nowhere assumed that X possesses a Schauder basis or that the operator T is positive definite and selfadjoint. The results extend and/or improve recent results obtained by Chen, Kartsatos and Mabry, and Kesavan.
