Constructions of Uniformly Convex Functions
Printed: Dec 2012
Jonathan M. Borwein,
We give precise conditions under which the composition
of a norm with a convex function yields a
uniformly convex function on a Banach space.
Various applications are given to functions of power type.
The results are dualized to study uniform smoothness
and several examples are provided.
