comment Show $g(a)= \operatorname*{arg}_{b \in B} \, f(a,b)=0$ is continuous when $g(a)$ is single-valued and $f$ continuous
@CameronBuie I think I can correct the flaw as follow. Assuming $g$ is discontinuous at $a$, there is a sequence $a_n$ in $A$ converging to $a$ and an $\epsilon >0$ such that for each $n$, $b_n=g(a_n)$ and $|b_n-g(a)|>\epsilon$.

@CameronBuie Thanks for your edit. You read my mind. I don't understand why, though, the $\arg_{b \in B}$ notation is not equivalent to the $B_a$ notation.

revised Show $f(a)=\operatorname{E} \min(aX,Y)$ is a quasilinear function of $a$
change X_t, Y_t to X,Y, added explanation of quasilinear, per Davide comment and did answer

Strong as always. Thank you did. It's true that stochastic processes are not revelant. I got confuse in adapting my problem. I will correct the question.

@DavideGiraudo I mean it's both quasiconcave and quasiconvex. Maybe only one of these is possible though.

revised Show $f(x)=\int_E x^tg(t)d\mu(t)$ is continuous when $\mu$ is a general measure
1 char in body, following Byron comment, so that all $t$ are nonnegative

@ByronSchmuland Good point. I forgot to mention that the $t$ are positive. Thank you.

Both your answer and the one of copper.hat are excellent. I throw a coin to decide the winner.

@copper.hat I meant the integral of $x^t$, sorry.

@Nimza Good eyes, I should have wrote $x^t$, not $x$. Thank you.

comment Finding the fixed point of a function
I'm not clear on how to interpret mixed strategies in my case. The strategy sets $A$ and $B$ are both convex subset of $\mathbb{R}^n$. Let $\Pi(A)$ be the set of possible probability distribution on $A$. My understanding is that the mixed strategies are $\Pi(A) \times \Pi(B)$. Aren't these different?

which theorem do you have in mind?
