## Relative interior.

roposition

Let C be a nonempty convex set consisting of more then one point.

a. ( Non emptiness of relative interior). The is not empty and . If then there are vectors such that span the subspace parallel to .

b. ( Line segment principle). If and then all point of the line connecting and , except possibly the , belong to .

Let be a vector such that is a subspace. One can choose vectors such that , are linearly independent and the linear span of is . All convex combinations of belong to and also belong to . Hence, the is not empty. We construct as claimed in (a) by taking . Consequently, .

The statement (b) is evident from the picture ( Relative interior ).
