Minimal pairs of compact convex sets
Pairs of compact convex sets naturally arise in quasidifferential calculus as sub- and superdifferentials of a quasidifferentiable function (see Dem86). Since the sub- and superdifferentials are not uniquely determined, minimal representations are of special importance. In this paper we give a survey on some recent results on minimal pairs of closed bounded convex sets in a topological vector space (see PALURB). Particular attention is paid to the problem of characterizing minimal representatives of a pair of nonempty compact convex subsets of a locally convex topological vector space in the sense of the Rådström-Hörmander theory.
