Of central importance in convex analysis are conditions guaranteeing that the conjugate of a sum is the infimal convolution of the conjugates. The main result in this direction is a theorem due to Attouch and Brézis. In turn, it gives rise to the Fenchel–Rockafellar duality framework for convex optimization problems.
