Abstract

In this paper an intuitive and geometric approach is presented explaining the basic ideas of convex/quasiconvex analysis and its relation to duality theory. As such, this paper does not contain new results but serves as a hopefully easy introduction to the most important results in duality theory for convex/quasiconvex functions on locally convex real topological vector spaces. Moreover, its connection to optimization is also discussed.
