Convexity in topological affine planes Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We extend to topological affine planes the standard theorems of convexity, among them the separation theorem, the anti-exchange theorem, Radon's, Helly's, Caratheodory's, and Kirchberger's theorems, and the Minkowski theorem on extreme points. In a few cases the proofs are obtained by adapting proofs of the original results in the Euclidean plane; in others it is necessary to devise new proofs that are valid in the more general setting considered here.
