Ivanov Dept. of Higher Mathematics, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Institutski str. 9, Dolgoprudny 141700, Russia [Abstractpdf] \def\S{{\mathcal{S}}} For a convex body $C$ in a Banach space $E$ we consider the class $\S(C)$ of closed sets $A\subset E$ satisfying the support condition with respect to $C$. If $C$ is a ball with radius $r$, then $\S(C)$ is exactly the class of uniformly $r$proxregular sets. We prove that the intersection operator $(A,C)\mapsto A\cap C$ is uniformly Hausdorff continuous and has a uniformly continuous selection on the family of pairs $(A,C)$ such that $C$ is closed and uniformly convex, $rA\in\S(C)$ with $r\in(0,1)$, and $A\cap C\ne\emptyset$. We also deduce some new sufficient condition for affirmative solution of the splitting problem for selections.
