In this article, some characterizations for gw-subdifferentiability of functions from R-n to R-m are stated. Some criteria for gw-subdifferentiability of generalized lower locally Lipschitz functions and positively homogeneous functions are given. Furthermore, it is proved that every Lipschitz function is gw-subdifferentiable at any point in its domain. Finally, the relationship between directional derivative and gw-subdifferential is given and a convexity criteria for Frechet differentiable function is given by using gw-subdifferential.
