Fréchet normal cone

Given $x\in \Omega(\subset X)$ (X: Banach space) and $\varepsilon\geq 0$, the set of $\varepsilon-$normals to $\Omega$ at $x$ by \begin{align} \widehat N_\varepsilon(x;\Omega):=\left\{x^*\in X^*\mid ...

Convex Inequality describing Functions inside specific area

Let us assume that we have two functions $f_1$, $f_2:[0,1] \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^{2}$, which describe each a point trajectory on the plane. Let us further assume that we parametrize those functions ...

Generalization of log-convexity (log-concavity): log-log-convexity (log-log-concavity)?

$\underline{\mathrm{Background\; on\; function\; Convexity}}$ A function, $f$, is convex if: $$f( x\theta+y(1-\theta) ) \leq \theta f(x) + (1-\theta)f(y).$$ $f$ is concave if $-f$ is convex, [1]. If ...

Properties of the square norm in Banach spaces

Let $X$ be a Banach space with its dual $X^*$. Consider the mapping $f: X\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ given by $$f(x)=\frac{1}{2}\|x\|^2.$$ We have know that when $X$ is a real Hilbert space ($X=X^*$) ...

Showing that $T+S$ is firmly nonexpansive

Show that $T+S$ is firmly nonexpansive considering that $T$ and $S$ are firmly nonexpansive mappings from $\mathbb R^n$ to $\mathbb R^n$. Definition: We say that $F$ is firmly nonexpansive if: ...

Show that $Z=T(2S−I)+I−S$ is firmly nonexpansive

Suppose $T$ and $S$ are firmly nonexpansive mappings from $\mathbb R^n$ to $\mathbb R^n$. Let $I$ be identity operator. I want to show that $Z=T(2S−I)+I−S$ is firmly nonexpansive. Definition. We say ...
Consider a closed convex compact subset $\mathbb{S}$ of $\mathbb{R}^N$ while we denote any of its point by $x=[x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_N]^T$. Define the function \begin{align} f(x)=max(x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_N) ...
Is the function $Trace(AX^TBX)$ a convex function in $X$ or not ? Here, $X$ is a rectangular matrix and $A,B$ are square, symmetric, p.s.d matrices. The entries in $X,A,B$ are real valued.
