The barrier attribute of filled functions. (English) Zbl 1043.90070
Summary: A number of filled functions was proposed recently. This paper presents a new perspective of the filled functions: their barrier attribute. More filled functions can be constructed according to this new interpretation. Two of them are with finite barriers while the remains are with infinite barriers.
