### Maximizing quadratic forms

Consider the maximization problem
$$\text{maximize} \quad Q(x)= \sum_{i<j} \Big(\sum_{k} a_{ik}a_{jk}\Big) x_i x_j \quad \text{subject to} \quad \sum_{i}x_i^2=1,$$
and let $M$ be maximum value ...

### Extreme points of an intersection of convex set with countably many linear spaces

Let $V$ be some `nice' vector space and let $T: V\to \mathbb{R}$ be a linear functional over $V$.
Define
\begin{align}
M= K \cap \bigcup_{i \in \mathbb{N} } \{ v \in V: T(v)=c_i \}
\end{align}

### Regarding extreme point in a Banach space

Let $X$ be a Banach space. And let $X^* $ be the dual space of $X$. Let $E_X$ and $E_{X^*}$ denote the extreme points of the unit ball of $X$ and $X^*$. Let $x\in X$ and $|f(x)|=1$ for every $f\in E_{...

### If the closed unit ball of Banach space has at least one extreme point, must the Banach space the be a dual space?

Let $X$ be a Banach space.
By Banach-Alaoglu and Krein-Milman Theorems, one can show that if $X$ is a dual space, then $X$ must have at least one extreme point of the closed unit ball.
I am ...
