The new proximal average transforms continuously in epi-topology from one proximal hull to the other. When one of the functions is differentiable, the new proximal average is differentiable. We give characterizations for Lipschitz and single-valued proximal mappings and we show that the convex combination of convexified proximal mappings is always a proximal mapping. Subdifferentiability and behaviors of infimal values and minimizers are also studied.
