So I have insane pinkie pie as my desktop background and I am simply horrified at the possibility that someone will happen upon my computer and see it. I've had some embarassing wallpapers before but I was never really that worried that someone would see it.

Well, what's g''(x)? convexity doesn't imply differentiability at any rate I found the solution. I was using the definition of convexity that spivak first gave me. (f(x) - f(a)) / (x - a) < (f(b) - f(a))/(b-a) It turns out to be much easier with the definition f(tx + (1-t)y) < tf(x) + (1-t)f(y) wit...

I keep working under the assumption that if f is convex then the function g such that g(x) = f(-x) for all x is convex as well. A lot of the proofs I am writing rely on this fact but I can't seem to prove it myself right now. I can't brain today, I have the dumb.
