Normal cones, barrier cones, and the “spherical image” of convex surfaces in locally convex spaces

Theodore Willis Laetsch

Vol. 73 (1977), No. 1, 107–123

This paper discusses relations between a closed, convex set in a locally convex space and its normal cones and barrier cone in the dual space. Results of Wu and de Andrade on the Gauss map and spherical image of a convex hypersurface in a Hilbert space are generalized to the topological vector space situation, and additional information is obtained on the relation of the interior of the spherical image and barrier cone to the size and shape of the given convex set.
