We introduce the notion of a smooth set in a locally convex topological vector space and extend Asplund's result on the strong differentiability space. We also establish Gateaux differentiability of a continuous convex function in a locally convex topological vector space. In particular, we extend Mazur's classical theorem on Gateaux differentiability from a separable Banach space to a separable locally convex topological vector space.
Keywords: Topological vector space, smooth set, uniform differentiability, Gateaux differentiability.
