Abstract : In this paper, a new Ekeland type variational principle on gauge spaces is established. As applications, we give Caristi-Kirk type fixed point theorems on gauge spaces, and Dane\v{s}' drop theorem on semi-normed spaces. Also, we show that the Palais-Smale condition implies coercivity on semi-normed spaces.
Keywords : variational principle, gauge space, fixed point, drop theorem, Palais-Smale condition
