Rabier, Patrick J.
Quasiconvexity and Density Topology
We prove that if $f:\mathbb{R}^{N}\rightarrow \overline{\mathbb{R}}$ is quasiconvex and $U\subset \mathbb{R}^{N}$ is open in the density topology, then $\sup_{U}f=\operatorname{ess\,sup}_{U}f,$ while $\inf_{U}f=\operatorname{ess\,inf}_{U}f$ if and only if the equality holds when $U=\mathbb{R}^{N}.$ The first (second) property is typical of lsc (usc) functions and, even when $U$ is an ordinary open subset, there seems to be no record that they both hold for all quasiconvex functions. This property ensures that the pointwise extrema of $f$ on any nonempty density open subset can be arbitrarily closely approximated by values of $f$ achieved on ``large'' subsets, which may be of relevance in a variety of issues. To support this claim, we use it to characterize the common points of continuity, or approximate continuity, of two quasiconvex functions that coincide away from a set of measure zero.

The multidirectional mean value theorem in Banach spaces
Recently, F.~H.~Clarke and Y.~Ledyaev established a multidirectional mean value theorem applicable to lower semi-continuous functions on Hilbert spaces, a result which turns out to be useful in many applications. We develop a variant of the result applicable to locally Lipschitz functions on certain Banach spaces, namely those that admit a ${\cal C}^1$-Lipschitz continuous bump function.
