## Abstract

A function f defined on a given convex set X which can be expressed as a difference of two convex (continuous) functions is called d.c function or δ-convex function. The functions which are Lipschitz and bounded variation are expressible as a d.c. function and since those family of d.c. functions form a linear space as well as a lattice, it admits many operations. The decomposition of a given function f as a d.c. functions is not unique. Choosing the better (minimal) decomposition is useful in describing the optimality conditions for d.c. optimization.
