Project #23704 - MTH

1#. Show, using the definition of convex set, that the set S = {(x, y)|4x − 5y ≥ 20} is

convex.

2#. Let C R^ n be convex, and suppose f : C → R and g : C → R are convex. Define

h : C → R by h(x) = max {f(x), g(x)}.

(a) Prove that epi h = epi f ∩ epi g.

(b) Use part (a) to show that h is convex.

3# (a) Let g : R

n → R be convex with g(x) ≥ 3 for all x R^n. Show that the function f

defined by

f(x) = (g(x) − 3)2

is convex on R^n.

(b) If we no longer require g(x) ≥ 3, give an example of a convex function g : R → R such

that (g(x) − 3)2 is not convex.

4#. Let f : R^n → R have continuous first-order partial derivatives at all points in R^n. Show

that if f is strictly convex and f(x) = f(y), then x = y.

 

5# Suppose that f is a convex function with continuous first partials defined on a convex set C in R^n. Prove that a point x is a global minimizer of f on C if and only if f(x) · (x − x) ≥ 0 for all x in C.
