Convex sets and the bounded slope condition

Philip Hartman

Vol. 25 (1968), No. 3, 511–522
Abstract

Let Ω be a bounded open convex set in Rn with boundary Γ. This paper concerns the class B(Γ) of functions ϕ(x), defined on Γ, satisfying a bounded slope condition and its closure B(Γ) in C0(Γ). The class B(Γ) is of interest because of its occurrence in the theory of nonlinear, nonuniformly elliptic, boundary value problems. It is shown that B(Γ) is the set of continuous functions on Γ which, on flat pieces of Γ, are restrictions of linear functions of x. Thus B(Γ) = C0(Γ) if and only if there are no line segments on Γ.
