convex function; convex set; exceptional set
Summary:
We construct a Lipschitz function on $\mathbb R^2$ which is locally convex on the complement of some totally disconnected compact set but not convex. Existence of such function disproves a theorem that appeared in a paper by L. Pasqualini and was also cited by other authors.
