China cuiya@hrbust.edu.cn [Abstractpdf] We prove that if every bounded subset of $X^{*}$ is $w^{*}$separable, $X$ is compactly locally uniformly convex, $X$ is 2strictly convex and $X$ is nonsquare, then there exists a sequence $\{x_n\}_{n = 1}^\infty $ of dentable points of $B(X)$ such that $S(X) \subset \mathop \cup _{n = 1}^\infty B(x_n,{r_n})$, where $r_{n}< 1$ for all $n\in N$. Moreover, we also prove that if $A$ is a bounded closed convex subset of $X$, then $x\in A$ is a strongly exposed point of $A$ if and only if $x$ is a dentable point of $A$ and $x$ is a $w^{*}$exposed point of $\overline {{A^{{w^*}}}}$.
