### Is the intersection of boundaries of convex bodies a topological sphere?

Let $K_1, K_2, \ldots K_n$ be convex bodies in $R^d$. Assume that for any index set $I$, $\cap_{i \in I} K_i$ is not empty and is not properly contained in any body $K_i$ for $i\in I$. Is it true ...

### A natural center of a convex weakly compact set in Banach space

Question: Let $S$ be a convex weakly compact set in Banach space $H$. Propose a natural way to define the unique center $O \in S$. Motivation: A lot! For example, in game theory $S$ can be a set of ...

### Generalized unique nearest point problem for a compact, convex set in a strictly convex Banach space.

If $X$ is a Real Banach space with strictly convex norm, it is known that for any non-empty compact, convex set $K$ and point $x_0\notin K$, there exists a unique point $z_0\in K$ minimizing the ...

### What is the “positive part” of the unit ball in $M_n(R)$ ?

In ${\bf M}_n(\mathbb R)$, let us consider the usual operator norm $$\|A\|=\sup\frac{\|Ax\|}{\|x\|},$$ where $\|x\|$ is the Euclidian norm. The closed unit ball $B$ is the set of contractions (in the ...

Suppose $f:[0,1]\to[0,1]^2$ is continuous and for each $t\in[0,1]$, the area of $\lbrace f(s) : 0\le s\le t \rbrace$ is $t$. For what sets of values of $t\in[0,1]$ can $\lbrace f(s) : 0\le s\le t \... 2answers 1k views ### Does a notion of convex graph make sense? Let$X=(V,E)$be a finite connected graph. I would be interested in some notion of convexity. General question: Is there a notion of convexity for finite connected graphs? How does it look like? ... 1answer 633 views ### Java library for SDP [closed] People who frequently code semi definite programs, is there any java library for solving sdps? I have tried my luck but all I can find is C/C++ libraries or matlab toolboxes. I can write wrappers to ... 2answers 663 views ### gradient of convex functions Hello. Can somebody help me with the following question that I have thought over for quite some time, to no avail? Let$f$be a smooth function (class$\mathrm{C}^{\infty}$),$f:\mathbb{R}^n \...
Let $X = \{ x_1,\dots,x_n\}$ denote a set of $n$ points in the unit square $S = [0,1]\times[0,1]$, and let $w = \{w_1,\dots,w_n\}$ denote a set of weights corresponding to the $n$ points in $X$. ...
