A Survey of Examples of Convex Functions and Classifications of Normed Spaces
This paper represents a slightly extended version of the eponymous talk given at the VII Colloque Franco-Allemand d’Optimisation. My aim is to illustrate the tight connection between the sequential properties of a Banach space and the corresponding properties of the convex functions and sets which may or may not be defined on that space.
