On Certain Properties of Trigonometrically ρ-Convex Functions


The aim of this paper is to prove that the average function of a trigonometrically ρ-convex function is trigonometrically ρ-convex. Furthermore, we show the existence of support curves implies the trigonometric ρ-convexity, and prove an extremum property of this function.
