On Mutually $m$-permutable Product of Smooth Groups
Let $G$ be a finite group and $H$, $K$ two subgroups of G. A group $G$ is said to be a mutually m-permutable product of $H$ and $K$ if $G=HK$ and every maximal subgroup of $H$ permutes with $K$ and every maximal subgroup of $K$ permutes with $H$. In this paper, we investigate the structure of a finite group which is a mutually m-permutable product of two subgroups under the assumption that its maximal subgroups are totally smooth.

Keywords:permutable subgroups, $m$-permutable, smooth groups, subgroup lattices

Constructions of Uniformly Convex Functions
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.

Keywords:convex function, uniformly convex function, uniformly smooth function, power type, Fenchel conjugate, composition, norm

Bezdek, K.; Kiss, Gy.
On the X-ray Number of Almost Smooth Convex Bodies and of Convex Bodies of Constant Width
The X-ray numbers of some classes of convex bodies are investigated. In particular, we give a proof of the X-ray Conjecture as well as of the Illumination Conjecture for almost smooth convex bodies of any dimension and for convex bodies of constant width of dimensions $3$, $4$, $5$ and $6$.

Keywords:almost smooth convex body, convex body of constant width, weakly neighbourly antipodal convex polytope, Illumination Conjecture, X-ray number, X-ray Conjecture

Existence of Positive Solutions for Nonlinear Noncoercive Hemivariational Inequalities
In this paper we investigate the existence of positive solutions for nonlinear elliptic problems driven by the $p$-Laplacian with a nonsmooth potential (hemivariational inequality). Under asymptotic conditions that make the Euler functional indefinite and incorporate in our framework the asymptotically linear problems, using a variational approach based on nonsmooth critical point theory, we obtain positive smooth solutions. Our analysis also leads naturally to multiplicity results.

Keywords:$p$-Laplacian, locally Lipschitz potential, nonsmooth critical point theory, principal eigenvalue, positive solutions, nonsmooth Mountain Pass Theorem

Rychtář, Jan
On Gâteaux Differentiability of Convex Functions in WCG Spaces
It is shown, using the Borwein--Preiss variational principle that for every continuous convex function $f$ on a weakly compactly generated space $X$, every $x_0\in X$ and every weakly compact convex symmetric set $K$ such that $\cspan K=X$, there is a point of G\^ateaux differentiability of $f$ in $x_0+K$. This extends a Klee's result for separable spaces.

Keywords:Gâteaux smoothness, Borwein--Preiss variational principle,, weakly compactly generated spaces

On the construction of Hölder and Proximal Subderivatives
We construct Lipschitz functions such that for all $s>0$ they are $s$-H\"older, and so proximally, subdifferentiable only on dyadic rationals and nowhere else. As applications we construct Lipschitz functions with prescribed H\"older and approximate subderivatives.

Keywords:Lipschitz functions, Hölder subdifferential, proximal subdifferential, approximate subdifferential, symmetric subdifferential, Hölder smooth, dyadic rationals
Categories:49J52, 26A16, 26A24
