The kernel average for two convex functions and its application to the extension and representation of monotone operators

We provide and analyze a based average for two convex functions, based on a kernel function. It covers several known averages such as the arithmetic average, epigraphical average, and the proximal average. When applied to the Fitzpatrick function and the conjugate of Fitzpatrick function associated with a monotone operator, our average produces an autoconjugate (also … Read more
