Abstract: Let be a separable strictly convex Banach space of dimension at least 2. It is shown that there exists a nonempty compact connected set such that the nearest point mapping is not single valued on a set of points dense in . Furthermore, it is proved that most (in the sense of the Baire category) nonempty compact connected sets have the above property. Similar results hold for the furthest point mapping.
