Convex functions with continuous epigraph or continuous level sets
- 79 Downloads
Convex functions with continuous epigraph in the sense of Gale and Klée have been studied recently by Auslender and Coutat in a finite-dimensional setting. Here, we provide characterizations of such functionals in terms of the Legendre-Fenchel transformation in general locally convex spaces. Also, we show that the concept of continuous convex sets is of interest in these spaces. We end with a characterization of convex functions on Euclidean spaces with continuous level sets.
