Broendsted-Rockafellar Property of Subdifferentials of Prox-Bounded Functions
Université des Antilles et de la Guyane, 97159 Pointe ŕ Pitre, France
We provide a new proof that the subdifferential of a proper lower semicontinuous convex function on a Banach space is maximal monotone by adapting the pattern commonly used in the Hilbert setting. We then extend the arguments to show more precisely that subdifferentials of proper lower semicontinuous prox-bounded functions possess the Broendsted-Rockafellar property.
Keywords: Subdifferential, maximal monotonicity, convex function, prox-bounded function, Broendsted-Rockafellar property, variational principle.
