In science:

In the sequel, we write caff(Z, X ) for {B ∈ aff(Z, X ): B is continuous} and P CLS C (Z ) for (cid:8)f ∈ P C (Z ): f is lower semicontinuous(cid:9).
The asymmetric sandwich theorem
Let (Z, | · |) be a complete (F )–normed CC space, X be an (F )–normed topological vector space, B ∈ caff(Z, X ), Φ ∈ P CLS C (Z ), Y := Sλ>0 λB (dom Φ) be a complete linear subspace of X , and γ ∈ R.
The asymmetric sandwich theorem
Let (Z, | · |) be a complete (F )–normed CC space, X be an (F )–normed topological vector space, B ∈ caff(Z, X ), Φ ∈ P CLS C (Z ) and Y := Sλ>0 λB (dom Φ) be a complete linear subspace of X .
The asymmetric sandwich theorem
We write Z ♯ := {z ♭ ∈ Z ♭ : z ♭ is continuous} = caff(Z, R).
The asymmetric sandwich theorem
Let Z be a complete (F )–normed CC space, P be a CC space, X be a Fr´echet space, B ∈ caff(Z, X ), A ∈ aff(Z, P ), Ψ ∈ P CLS C (Z ), Sλ>0 λB (dom Ψ) be a closed linear subspace of X and, for all p ∈ P , h(p) := inf Ψ(cid:0)A−1 {p} ∩ B−1 {0}(cid:1) > −∞.
