# Strictly convex equivalent norm

Does any Banach space admit an equivalent strictly convex norm (i.e. such a norm, that a unit sphere does not contain segments)?

-

Every separable Banach space has an equivalent norm which is both strictly convex and smooth. For certain nonseparable spaces, in particular, $\ell_{\infty}(\Gamma)$ with $\Gamma$ uncountable, there may be no equivalent strictly convex or smooth norm.
