Motivated by the Hilbert space version of this result and by the wellknown result saying that this convex conjugation transform has a unique fixed point (namely, the normalized energy function), we investigate the fixed point equation in which the involved operator is fully order reversing and acts on the abovementioned class of functions. It turns out that this nonlinear equation is very sensitive to the involved parameters and can have no solution, a unique solution, or several (possibly infinitely many) ones. Our analysis yields a few byproducts, such as results related to positive definite operators, and to functional equations and inclusions involving monotone operators. Keywords: Convex conjugation, fixed point, functional equation, lower semicontinous proper convex function, LegendreFenchel transform, monotone operator, order reversing operator, positive definite, quadratic function.
