Abstract: It is shown that on the space of lower semicontinuous convex functions defined on $ {R^n}$, the conjugation map--the Legendre-Fenchel transform--is an isometry with respect to some metrics consistent with the epi-topology. We also obtain isometries for the infinite dimensional case (Hilbert space and reflexive Banach space), but this time they correspond to topologies finer than the Moscoepi-topology.
