Abstract. We show that the minimization problem of any non--convex and non--lower semi--continuous functional on a compact convex subset of a locally convex real topological vector space can be studied via an associated convex and lower semi--continuous functional $\Gamma \left( h ight)$. This observation uses the notion of $\Gamma$--regularization as a key ingredient. As an application we obtain, on any locally convex real space, a generalization of the Lanford III--Robinson theorem which has only been proven for separable real Banach spaces. The latter is a characterization of subdifferentials of convex continuous functionals.
