A formula for the sub\-differential of the sum of a series of convex functions defined on a Banach space was provided by X. Y. Zheng in 1998. In this paper, besides a slight extension to locally

We discuss informally two approaches to solving convex and nonconvex feasibility problems — via entropy optimization and via algebraic iterative methods. We shall highlight the advantages and
