The invertibility of an order-reversing transform on the class of proper lower semicontinuous convex functions is completely determined by the behavior of its composition with its putative inverse (and of the reverse composition) on the subclasses of continuous affine functions over the primal and dual spaces. This strengthens a recent result of Artstein-Avidan and Milman, which characterizes order-reversing transforms of convex functions as affine adjustments of the Legendre-Fenchel transform.
Keywords: Locally convex space, Legendre-Fenchel transform, convex duality.
