It is shown that if $k(x)$ is upper semicontinuous and quasi lower semicontinuou s on a Banach space $X$, then $k(x) B_{X^*}$ is the Clarke subdifferential of some locally Lipschitz function on $X$. Related results for approximate subdifferentials are also given. Moreover, on smooth Banach spaces, for every locally Lipschitz function with minimal Clarke subdifferential, one can obtain a maximal Clarke subdifferential map via its `local Lipschitz constant' function. Finally, some results concerning the calculus of local Lipschitz constants are developed.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
