# Notions of Convexity

@inproceedings{Hrmander1994NotionsOC, title={Notions of Convexity}, author={Lars H{\"o}rmander}, year={1994} }

The first two chapters of the book are devoted to convexity in the classical sense, for functions of one and several real variables respectively. This gives a background for the study in the following chapters of related notions which occur in the theory of linear partial differential equations and complex analysis such as (pluri-)subharmonic functions, pseudoconvex sets and sets which are convex for supports or singular supports with respect to a differential operator. In addition the…
