Strong slopes of a vector-valued map and applications in the study of error bounds, weak sharp minima and calmness

Using Hiriart-Urruty’s signed distance function, we present new definitions of strong slopes for a vector-valued map recently introduced in [E.M. Bednarczuk, A.Y., Kruger, Error bounds for vector-valued functions on metric spaces. Vietnam J. Math. 40 (2012), no. 2-3, 165-180]. With the new presentation, we are able to show that these slopes enjoy most properties of … Read more
