Find the minimum \(m\) (if it exists) such that every convex function \(f:[-1,1]\to[-1,1]\) has a constant \(c\) such that \[ \int_{-1}^1 \lvert f(x)-c\rvert \,dx \le m.\]

Find the minimum \(m\) (if it exists) such that every convex function \(f:[-1,1]\to[-1,1]\) has a constant \(c\) such that \[ \int_{-1}^1 \lvert f(x)-c\rvert \,dx \le m.\]

Suppose that \( f \) is a real-valued convex function on \( \mathbb{R} \). Prove that the function \( X \mapsto \mathrm{Tr } f(X) \) on the vector space of \( N \times N \) Hermitian matrices is convex.

Let C be a continuous and self-avoiding curve on the plane. A curve from A to B is called a *C-segment* if it connects points A and B, and is similar to C. A set S of points one the plane is called *C-convex* if for any two distinct points P and Q in S, all the points on the C-segment from P to Q is contained in S.

Prove that a bounded C-convex set with at least two points exists if and only if C is a line segment PQ.

(We say that two curves are similar if one is obtainable from the other by rotating, magnifying and translating.)
