On typical compact convex sets in Hilbert spaces. (English) Zbl 0976.46010

Summary: Let \(\mathbb{E}\) be an infinite-dimensional separable space and for \(e\in\mathbb{E}\) and \(X\) a nonempty compact convex subset of \(\mathbb{E}\), let \(q_X(e)\) be the metric antiprojection of \(e\) on \(X\). Let \(n\geq 2\) be an arbitrary integer. It is shown that for a typical (in the sense of the Baire category) compact convex set \(X\subset\mathbb{E}\) the metric antiprojection \(q_X(e)\) has cardinality at least \(n\) for every \(e\) in a dense subset of \(\mathbb{E}\).
