Example text

Step 5. We now show the last claim of the theorem. This follows at once from Step 3, since ∂E = E − int E = E − int E = ∂E. 2 Separation theorems In this section, we present different separation theorems, that in the infinite dimensional case are called Hahn-Banach theorem. We recall that given two sets E, F ⊂ RN , we let E + F := x ∈ RN : x = y + z, y ∈ E and z ∈ F . 35 Convex sets We now have some definitions. 8 (i) A hyperplane H, defined by x; a = α with a ∈ RN , a = 0, and α ∈ R, is said to separate the sets E, F ⊂ RN if either x; a ≤ α ≤ y; a for every x ∈ E and y ∈ F or the same inequalities hold for every x ∈ F and y ∈ E.

Iii) Define the set G = E − F := z ∈ RN : z = x − y with x ∈ E and y ∈ F . It is clearly convex and closed, since E is closed and F is compact. Moreover since E ∩ F = ∅, we have that 0 ∈ / G. We may then apply (i) of the theorem to find a ∈ RN , a = 0, so that 0 < inf { z; a : z ∈ G} = inf { x; a : x ∈ E} − sup { y; a : y ∈ F } which is the desired statement. /E (iv) Let E ⊂ RN (E = ∅ and E = RN ) be closed and convex. For any x ∈ we can find, from (i), a ∈ RN , a = 0, and α ∈ R, so that x; a < α < inf { x; a : x ∈ E} .

X∈E (iii) Gauge. 7) as ρE (x) := inf {λ ≥ 0 : x ∈ λE} . (iv) Distance function. Given E ⊂ RN , we define dE (x) := inf {|x − e| : e ∈ E} . It is easily seen that if E is convex, then dE is convex . If E is closed, then dE (x) = 0 ⇔ x ∈ E. ♦ We now recall some definitions and notations. 24 Let f : RN → R ∪ {+∞} . (i) f is said to be lower semicontinuous if lim inf f (xν ) ≥ f (x) . xν →x (ii) The domain of f is defined as dom f := x ∈ RN : f (x) < +∞ . (iii) The epigraph of f is defined as epi f := (x, α) ∈ RN × R : f (x) ≤ α .
