  • Abstract
    A subset of R^n is said to be evenly convex (e-convex, in breaf) if it is the intersection of some family (possibly empty) of open halfspaces. In this paper, we collect some published results which show that this large class of convex sets enjoys a lot of the well-known properties of the subclass of closed convex sets. We also consider functions whose epigraphs are e-convex sets, the so-called e-convex functions, and we show the main properties of this class of convex functions that contains the important class of lower semicontinuous convex functions.
