This paper studies the class of increasing and co-radiant (ICR) functions over a cone equipped with an order relation which agrees with the conic structure. In particular, a representation of ICR functions as abstract convex functions is provided. This representation suggests the introduction of some polarity notions between sets. The relationship between ICR functions and increasing positively homogeneous functions is also shown.
Keywords: Monotonic analysis, ICR functions, abstract convexity, radiant sets, co-radiant sets, normal sets, co-normal sets.
