REMOTAL SETS REVISITED

Full-text: Open access

Abstract

Farthest point theory is not so rich and developed as nearest point theory, which has more applications. Farthest points are useful in studying the extremal structure of sets; see, e.g., the survey paper [14]. There are some interactions between the two theories; in particular, uniquely remotal sets in Hilbert spaces are related to the old open problem concerning the convexity of Chebyshev sets. The aim of this paper is twofold: first, we indicate characterizations of inner product spaces and of infinite-dimensional Banach spaces, in terms of remotal points and uniquely remotal sets. Second, we try to update the survey paper [15], concerning uniquely remotal sets.
