Abstract

The paper studies radiant and coradiant sets of some normed space X from the point of view of separation properties between a set A of X and a point x not included in A; indeed they show striking similarities with the ones holding for convex sets and can be obtained by simply changing halfspaces (level sets of linear continuous functions), with level sets of continuous superlinear functions. In a geometric perspective we can say that radiant sets are separated by means of convex coradiant sets and coradiant sets are separated by means of convex radiant sets. The identification between the geometric and the analytic approach passes through the well-known Minkoski gauge and the study of concave continuous gauges of convex coradiant sets. The results are then applied to the study of abstract convexity with respect to the family L of continuous superlinear functions, to the characterization of evenly coradiant convex sets and to the subdifferentiability of positively homogeneous functions.
