    • Rochet (Eccl) A linen garment resembling the surplise, but with narrower sleeves, also without sleeves, worn by bishops, and by some other ecclesiastical dignitaries, in certain religious ceremonies. "They see no difference between an idler with a hat and national cockade, and an idler in a cowl or in a rochet ."

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n rochet Originally, a short cloak worn by men of all degrees, also by women (in this case frequently a white linen outer garment).
    • n rochet Eccles., a close-fitting vestment of linen or lawn, worn by bishops and some others. It reaches to the knees or lower, and has close sleeves extending to the wrists, or is sleeveless. The rochet is a variety of the alb or surplice, the latter differing from both alb and rochet by the fullness of its sleeves. In the Roman Catholic Church the rochet is worn by bishops and abbots, usually under a manteletta, and, as a choir vestment, by some canons. In the Anglican Church the rochet is worn under the chimere—these vestments constituting the distinctive episcopal habit as ordinarily worn in church and in Parliament and Convocation. The lawn sleeves are now made very full, and attached to the chimere, not to the rochet.
    • n rochet Hence, a bishop: also used attributively.
    • n rochet A mantelet worn by the peers of England during ceremonies.
    • n rochet A kind of fish, the roach or piper gurnard.
    • rochet To invest with a rochet.

Rochet’s proof that a such payments exists on a possibly non-convex T iff f satisfies CMON is effectively a proof of the following generalization of this theorem.
General Truthfulness Characterizations Via Convex Analysis
Rochet notes that his proof is adapted from the one given in Rockafellar’s text of the weaker theorem where T is restricted to be convex.
General Truthfulness Characterizations Via Convex Analysis
We adapt Rochet’s proof to highlight how its core is a construction of G.
General Truthfulness Characterizations Via Convex Analysis
This also often has the advantage of providing a characterization of the payments that is more intuitive than the supremum in Rochet’s construction.
