We develop a theory of monotone operators in the framework of abstract convexity. We present a definition for abstract monotone operators and some examples of an abstract convex function such that its subdifferential is a maximal abstract monotone operator. Finally, we give an abstract convex representation for maximal abstract monotone operators.
Keywords: Monotone operator, abstract monotonicity, abstract convex function, abstract convexity, IPH function.
