1 B Convex Sets nd Functions Definition B1 Let L, +, ) be rel liner spce nd let C be subset of L The set C is convex if, for ll x,y C nd ll [, 1], we hve 1 )x+y C In other words, every point on the line segment connecting x nd y belongs to C Exmple B2 The convex subsets of R, +, ) re the intervls of R Regulr polygons re convex subsets of R 2 Definition B3 Let U be subset of rel liner spce L, +, ) A convex combintion of U is n element of L of the form 1 x k x k, where x 1,,x k U, i for 1 i k, nd k = 1 If the conditions i re dropped, we hve n ffine combintion of U In other words, x is n ffine combintion of U if there exist 1,, k R such tht x = 1 x k x k, for x 1,,x k U, nd k i = 1 Definition B4 Let U be subset of rel liner spce L, +, ) A subset {x 1,,x n } is ffinely dependent if = 1 x n x n such tht t lest one of the numbers 1,, n is nonzero nd i = If no such ffine combintion exists, then x 1,,x n re ffinely independent Theorem B5 The set U = {x 1,,x n } is ffinely independent if nd only if the set V = {x 1 x n,x n 1 x n } is linerly independent Proof Suppose tht U is ffinely independent but V is linerly dependent; tht is, = b 1 x 1 x n ) + + b n 1 x n 1 x n ) such tht not ll numbers b i re This implies b 1 x b n 1 x n 1 n 1 b i )x n =, which contrdicts the ffine independence of U

2 574 B Convex Sets nd Functions Conversely, suppose tht V is linerly independent but U is not ffinely independent In this cse, = 1 x n x n such tht t lest one of the numbers 1,, n is nonzero nd i = This implies n = 1 i, so = 1 x 1 x n ) + + n 1 x n 1 x n ) Observe tht t lest one of the numbers 1,, n 1 must be distinct from becuse otherwise we would hve 1 = = n 1 = n = This contrdicts the liner independence of V, so U is ffinely independent Exmple B6 Let x 1 nd x 2 be two elements of the liner spce R 2, +, ) The line tht psses through x 1 nd x 2 consists of ll x such tht x x 1 nd x x 2 re colliner; tht is, x x 1 ) + bx x 2 ) = for some, b R such tht + b Thus, we hve x = 1 x x 2, where = + b + b + b = 1, so x is n ffine combintion of x 1 nd x 2 It is esy to see tht the segment of line contined between x 1 nd x 2 is given by convex combintion of x 1 nd x 2 ; tht is, by n ffine combintion 1 x x 2 such tht 1, 2 Theorem B7 If C is convex subset of rel liner spce L, +, ), then C contins ll convex liner combintions of C Proof The proof is by induction on k 2 nd is left to the reder Theorem B8 The intersection of ny collection of convex sets of liner spce L, +, ) is convex set Proof Let C = {C i i I} be collection of convex sets nd let C = C Suppose tht x 1,,x k C, i for 1 i k, nd k = 1 Since x 1,,x k C i, it follows tht 1 x k x k C i for every i I Thus, 1 x k x k C, which proves the convexity of C Corollry B9 The fmily of convex sets of liner spce L, +, ) is closure system on PL) Proof This sttement follows immeditely from Theorem B8 by observing tht the set L is convex Corollry B9 llows us to define the convex hull of subset U of L s the closure K conv U) of U reltive to the closure system of the convex subsets of L If U R n consists of n+1 points such tht no point is n ffine combintion of the other n points, then K conv U) is n n-dimensionl simplex in L Exmple B1 A two-dimensionl simplex is defined strting from three points x 1,x 2,x 3 in R 2 such tht none of these points is n ffine combintion of

3 B Convex Sets nd Functions 575 the other two no point is colliner with the others two) Thus, the twodimensionl symplex generted by x 1,x 2,x 3 is the full tringle determined by x 1,x 2,x 3 In generl, n n-dimensionl simplex is the convex hull of set of n + 1 points x 1,,x n+1 in R n such tht no point is n ffine combintion of the remining n points Let S be the n-dimensionl simplex generted by the points x 1,,x n+1 in R n nd let x S If x S, then x is convex combintion of x 1,,x n,x n+1 In other words, there exist 1,, n, n+1 such tht 1,, n, n+1, 1), +1 i = 1, nd x = 1 x n x n + n+1 x n+1 The numbers 1,, n, n+1 re the bricentric coordintes of x reltive to the simplex S nd re uniquely determined by x Indeed, if we hve x = 1 x n x n + n+1 x n+1 = b 1 x b n x n + b n+1 x n+1, nd i b i for some i, this implies 1 b 1 )x n b n )x n + n+1 b n+1 )x n+1 =, which contrdicts the ffine independence of x 1,,x n+1 The next sttement plys centrl role in the study of convexity We reproduce the proof given in [59] Theorem B11 Crthéodory s Theorem) If U is subset of R n, then for every x K conv U) we hve x = +1 ix i, where x i U, i for 1 i n + 1, nd +1 i = 1 Proof Consider x K conv U) We cn write x = p+1 ix i, where x i U, i for 1 i p + 1, nd p+1 i = 1 Let p be the smllest number which llows this kind of expression for x We prove the theorem by showing tht p n Suppose tht p n+1 Then, the set {x 1,,x p+1 } is ffinely dependent, so there exist b 1,, b p+1 not ll zero such tht = p+1 b ix i nd p+1 b i = Without loss of generlity, we cn ssume b p+1 > nd p+1 b p+1 i b i for ll i such tht 1 i p nd b i > Define i c i = b i ) p+1 b i b p+1 for 1 i p We hve c i = i p+1 b p+1 b i = 1 Furthermore, c i for 1 i p Indeed, if b i, then c i i ; if b i >, then c i becuse p+1 b p+1 i b i for ll i such tht 1 i p nd b i > Thus, we hve

6 578 B Convex Sets nd Functions Proof The rgument is similr to the proof of Theorem B16 Corollry B18 Let f : R R be convex function nd let p, q, p, q be four numbers such tht p p < q q We hve the inequlity fq) fp) q p fq ) fp ) q p B2) Proof By Theorem B16 pplied to the numbers p, q, q, we hve fq) fp ) q p fq ) fp ) q p Similrly, by pplying Theorem B17 to p, p, q, we obtin fq) fp) q p fq) fp ) q p The inequlity of the corollry cn be obtined by combining the lst two inequlities From Corollry B18, it follows tht if f : R R is convex nd differentible everywhere, then its derivtive is n incresing function The converse is lso true; nmely, if f is differentible everywhere nd its derivtive is n incresing function, then f is convex Indeed, let, b, c be three numbers such tht < b < c By the men vlue theorem, there is p, b) nd q b, c) such tht f p) = fb) f) b Since f p) f q), we obtin nd f q) = fc) fb) c b fb) f) b fc) fb), c b which implies fb) c b c f) + b c fc); tht is, the convexity of f Thus, if f is twice differentible everywhere nd its second derivtive is nonnegtive everywhere, then it follows tht f is convex Clerly, under the sme conditions of differentibility s bove, if the second derivtive is nonpositive everywhere, then f is concve The functions listed in the Tble B1, defined on the set R, provide exmples of convex or concve) functions Theorem B19 Jensen s Theorem) Let f be function tht is convex on n intervl I If t 1,,t n [, 1] re n numbers such tht t i = 1, then
