"midconvexity" od zbiorów skończonych

The authors discuss possible generalizations of convexity (wypukłość). They choose what they consider to be the 'right' definition (Definition 2.5 We say that W ⊂ X is function X-midconvex (shortly X-fmidconvex) if there exists an X-midconvex function f : X→R such that ...). Thye go on to prove a version of the Krein-Milman theorem.

There seems to be almost no related work published in Polish. So I'd be inclined to leave their key term in English.

neutral  M.A.B.: The authors are Polish. I'm pretty sure they have a Polish term for it.

  -> "midconvexity" is a rare term even in technical English and I'd be very surprised if a Polish term exists. Certainly one could be created but, even if the authors do, they will put the English in brackets.
