A mapping $s : H \rightarrow G$ associated with a set-valued function $F$ from an (Abelian) semi-group $H$ to subsets of an (Abelian) semi-group $G$ which is a homomorphism (of semi-groups) and a selection of $F$. If $G \subset 2 ^ {H}$ and $F$ is the identity transformation on $G$, then $s$ is said to be an additive selection on $G$. An archetypical example of an additive selection is the mapping which subordinates to each non-empty compact set in $\mathbf R$ its maximal element. In $\mathbf R ^ {n}$, similar selections can be defined by means of lexicographic orders, see [a1] and Lexicographic order). They are Borel measurable but not continuous with respect to the Hausdorff metric (for $n > 1$). A Lipschitz-continuous additive selection on the family of convex bodies in $\mathbf R ^ {n}$ is given by associating with each convex body its Steiner point, see [a2]. No such selections can exist in infinite dimensions, see [a3], [a4].
