Multiplexing by this approach is, however, limited by this fluorophore differentiability issue, with most instruments being capable of resolving six or fewer simultaneous channels or reactions.
They begin with convex analysis, discussing such aspects as separation theorems for convex sets, differentiability of convex functions and the sub-differential, and a problem of linear programming.

One might think that the property of nowhere differentiability would indeed imply the nowhere differentiability of the Volterra convolution.
However, due to difficulties of differentiability, non-linearity, and non-convexity, these methods failed to provide the global optimum and only reached the local one.
Optimization problems are always associated with many kinds of difficult characteristics involving multimodality, dimensionality, and differentiability [1].
