Geometric applications of Ekeland's variational principle

I'm looking for geometric applications of Ekeland's variational principle in order to see it at work in a context I'm familiar with. Let me recall the principle itself: Definition. Let $(X,d)$ be a ...

lower semicontinuity of the number of extreme points

Do you know the reference for the following fact: the number of extreme points of a compact convex subset of a locally compact space varies lower semicontinuously when we endow the space of compact ...

When will the upper regularization of a bounded function not defined?

Suppose $E$ is a compact metric space. A function $f :E \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ is upper semicontinous if for all $c \in \mathbb{R}$, $f^{-1}(-\infty, c)$ is open in $E.$ For any real-valued ...

Takahashi minimization theorem for lower pseudo-continuous functions on complete metric spaces

Takahashi minimization theorem says : Let $(X,d)$ is a complete metric space, $f:X\to \mathbb{R}\cup\{+\infty\}$ is a proper(not constantly +$\infty$) lower semi continuous function, which is bounded ...

properties of orderd upper and lower semi continuous functions [closed]

$M$ is a compact space. Assume $f$ is upper semi-continuous on $M$, $g$ is lower semi-continuous on $M$, and $f(x) \geq g(x)$ for any $x\in M$. If $f(x_0) = g(x_0)$ for some point $x_0\in M$, is it ...

Approximation of semicontinuous functions by continuous (or smooth) functions with closed form

I'm looking for a sequence $(f_{\epsilon})_{\epsilon>0}$ of continuous (or smooth) functions approximating a semicontinuous function $f$. Here, for approximation, pointwise convergence is fine. For ...
upper semicontinuity in C(X)-algebras In the 5th paragraph of this post, I don't understand why there exists a vector b satisfying $||a+b||_A < ||q_x (a)||_A(x)$ By the definition of the quotient ...
