Abstract: Let be a closed, convex set in a topological vector space such that , the set of its nonsupport points, is nonempty (this is always the case if is Banach separable; if is Fréchet, is residual in ). If is normed, we prove that any locally Lipschitz, convex real function on is subdifferentiable on . If in addition is Banach separable, we prove that is smooth on a residual subset of .
