In this paper we study and compare the notions of uniform convexity of functions at a point and on bounded sets with the notions of total convexity at a point and sequential consistency of functions, respectively. We establish connections between these oncepts of strict convexity in infinite dimensional settings and use the connections in order to obtain improved convergence results concerning the outer Bregman projection algorithm for solving convex feasibility problems and the generalized proximal point algorithm for optimization in infinite dimensional spaces
