We show an extension of the Lax-Milgram theorem for the context of locally convex spaces. Furthermore we prove that such version of the Lax-Milgram theorem does not admit an analogous generalization for the multilinear case, even though we give a positive partial result.
Keywords: Lax--Milgram theorem, variational inequalities.
