Abstract:

The farthest point mapping in a p-normed space X is studied in virtue of the Gateaux derivative and the Frechet derivative. Let M be a closed bounded subset of X having the uniformly p-Gateaux differentiable norm. Under certain conditions, it is shown that every maximizing sequence is convergent, moreover, if M is a uniquely remotal set then the farthest point mapping is continuous and so M is singleton. In addition, a Hahn--Banach type theorem in $p$-normed spaces is proved.
