The aim of this paper is to present some generic existence results for nearest and farthest points in connection with some geometric properties of Banach spaces. 
Well Posed Optimization Problems and Nonconvex Chebyshev Sets in Hilbert Spaces
A result on the existence and uniqueness of metric projection for certain sets is proved, by means of a saddle point theorem. A conjecture, based on such a result and aiming for the construction of a
Some remarks on farthest points
We use renormings and generic differentiability of convex functions to prove some results on farthest points in sets in Banach spaces. As a corollary, we obtain an alternative proof of the
Best Approximation in Metric Spaces
Abstract The aim of this paper is to prove some results on the existence and uniqueness of elements of best approximation and continuity of the metric projection in metric spaces. For a subset M of a
Some results on t-nearest points in fuzzy normed linear spaces
In this paper we consider t-best nearest point and find algorithms for find t-best nearest points in fuzzy normed linear space.
The aim of this paper is to establish characterizations of remotal and antiremotal sets by a property of closedness, respectively openess, of some associated sets. We also examine the connection
When some variational properties force convexity
The notion of adequate (resp. strongly adequate) function has been recently introduced to characterize the essentially strictly convex (resp. essentially firmly subdifferentiable) functions among the
λ-fuzzy approximate fixed point in fuzzy metric spaces
This paper defines fuzzy points in fuzzy metric spaces and proves the existence theorems of fuzzy numbers or real numbers used to define fuzzy points.
Connectedness and Other Geometric Properties of Suns and Chebyshev Sets
This survey is concerned with structural characteristics of “suns” in normed linear spaces. Special attention is paid to connectedness and monotone path-connectedness of suns. We address both direct


The relation between directional derivatives of generalized distance functions and the existence of generalized nearest points in Banach spaces is investigated. We show that if the generalized
Geometric Aspects of Convex Sets with the Radon-Nikodym Property
This paper presents a meta-analyses of the representations of asplund spaces and the GSP in the setting of discrete-time discrete-space models.
Farthest points in weakly compact sets
LetS be a weakly compact subset of a Banach spaceB. We show that of all points inB which have farthest points inS contains a denseG5 ofB. Also, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for
On the convexity of the weakly compact Chebyshev sets in Banach spaces
A sufficient condition for a Banach spaceX is given so that every weakly compact Chebyshev subset ofX is convex. For this purpose a class broader than that of smooth Banach spaces is defined. In this
Farthest points in reflexive locally uniformly rotund Banach spaces
IfS is a bounded and closed subset of a Banach spaceB, which is both reflexive and locally uniformly rotund, then, except on a set of first Baire category, the points inB have farthest points inS.
Derivatives of Generalized Distance Functions and Existence of Generalized Nearest Points
It is proved that if the one-sided directional derivative of the generalized distance function associated to G at x equals to 1 or -1, then the generalized nearest points to x from G exist.
Proximal Mappings
We study differentiability properties and subdifferentiability properties of the Baire approximate and of the Moreau?Yosida approximate of a nonconvex function on a Banach space. These properties are
The Mazur Intersection Property and Farthest Points
K. S. Lau had shown that a reflexive Banach space has the Mazur Intersection Property (MIP) if and only if every closed bounded convex set is the closed convex hull of its farthest points. In this
Existence Of Nearest Points In Banach Spaces
This paper makes a unified development of what the authors know about the existence of nearest points to closed subsets of (real) Banach spaces. Our work is made simpler by the methodical use of
Farthest points in W*-compact sets
We show that while farthest points always exist in w* -compact sets in duals to Radon-Nikodym spaces, this is generally not the case in dual Radon-Nikodym spaces. We also show how to characterise
