ABSTRACT

In this paper we have discussed the generalization of convexity in a space and noted some interesting geometry

arising from it. The underlying space is

, d >1, is a d- dimensional Euclidean space. Convexity of a set of points in

is introduced and an operator on such sets namely the convex hull is also defined. Under this operator convexhull,

we formulate some propositions. Since, convexity is intimately related to the connectedness of the space , generalizations

to lines and planes brings to fore some topological restrictions. The study gains importance due to the global nature of the

problem. Richard Polleck, Raphael Wenger and others investigated this problem, we refer to [1][2][3] [4] Jacob E.

Goodman extends this study owing to its relationship with the discrete geometric nature of the set[1]. Section 2 has some

basic concepts from geometry and analysis. Section 3 deals with propositions and scope of the problem.

the Euclidean metric.Let S

**neighbourhood which has finite number of points. In any case we would expect S to be discrete.

A linear transformation T:

is a map which is completely determined by its action on basis

elements. In geometry we are trying to get a linear translate of the subspaces of

and quotienting

over

the quotient space where the elements are cosets is also a vector space over H. The members of

are the cosets. This is clear from linear algebra of vector spaces.

Definition 2.1 Let

two points of S lies completely in S . For example , If S is a line segment then S is convex. A line segment is defined by the

following property. If x,y

Isf S is such that any two points of S joined by the line segment, lies in S then S is convex. See figure (i) and (ii)

for S

**Basic Properties of a Convex Set
**

Let H be any set associated with S is the set called convex hull of S, denoted by ConvS, which contains S.

If S is a set of four points then its convex hull is as shown in the figure ( see figure (iii)).

S = {a,b,c,d}

**Convex hull satisfies the monotonicity property

**Conv(ConvS)=ConvS

This property is the idempotency property.

Let Conv S=S and x,y

S, further x

Conv(S U{y}) implies

x∉Conv(SU {y}).

The property 3 is called anti-exchange property of the convex hull operator.

Observe that , property 3 induces a partial order on the sets of

. The following proposition implies this

**property of anti-exchange.
**

Proposition 2.3 Let S

be convex and ConvS denote its convex hull , then

, the complete of S is

**partially ordered under anti-exchange property of convex hull.

Proof: Suppose the point set of

**Thus , anti-exchange property on s’ partitions S’ into equivalence classes

Remark:1.2.3 The property antiexchange gives us an idea that how far away are the point from a convex set.

The three properties defined above are generally called the convex hull operations and gives the convexity

structure.

Definition 1.2.4 An affine invariance of the convexity structure is that convex hull operating commuter with the

**Convexity Structure for Line Sets and in General K-Flats
**

In this section we generalize the notion of convexity for sets of

, which are not point sets but they are line

sets or more generally k=flats. This leads to what is known as Geometric transversal theory. From differential geometric

point of view there are examples , which provide us the notion of transversality on surfaces , and in manifolds of higher

dimensions we give two examples in each of these cases.

Following theorem due to [3] provides the convexity structure for G K, .d are Grassmanians.

Theorem1.3.1 There is no notion of convexity for lines or higher dimensional flats that is non-singular –affine

invariant, satisfying anti-exchange property in which all convex sets are connected.

For convexity to hold for the line (or K- flat) sets , we have to give up the connectedness. Thus , if we assume

that a convex set of flats are not always connected then we notice a rich theory , extending the notion of convexity and

**properties associated with the point sets.
**

Remark 1.3.1

If the space is one-dimensional then the points would sit on the line. if the space is two dimensional . then the

points and lines occur in this two dimensional setting. Points lying both on lines and plane itself. Thus, points and lines are

endowed with the property ‘surrounded by’ .This property of being ‘surrounded by’ is a key to generalize the convexity

structure to the sets whose points are lines and K-flats in

In the context of a flat F the notion of convex hull is defined by taking a re-look into the point sets of

.

**Let F denote a K- flat , then a hyper-plane will be a flat of co=dimension 1.
**

Definition 1.3.2 : Let x be a point in a flat F . Then we say that the point x in F is surrounded by a set of points S

in F if any hyper-plane H in F passing through x lies strictly between two parallel hyper-planes H 1 and H2 in F each

containing a point of S

The following figure is indicative and the description clearly suggests that such a hyper-plane is trapped by points

of S in case it tries to escape by a continuous translation to infinity

Figure (iv)

From this definition the following properties are hold good

x

Sometimes S may be a lower dimensional set and therefore by saying x is surrounded by the points of S instead of

conv S if and only if there is a flat F containing x with which x is surrounded by the points of S lying in F.

**it being surrounded by the points of S lying in F may not hold.
**

x

conv S if every convex point set meeting every point of S also meets x. This is quite evident as it amounts

T. Venkatesh & Mita N Amonkar

**to say that conv S is the intersection of all the convex point sets containing S.
**

Further ‘surrounded by’ makes a perfect meaning when the basic objects are flats of fixed dimension k , k

=1,2,3------ rather than simply points. Further the properties 1 and 2 are valid in that setting as equivalent statements.

Moreover they imply the basic property of convex structure associated with the convex hull operations in

. This

**leads to define the convex hull of k-flats
**

Definition 1.3.3: Let

k-flat

belongs to Conv

denote a set of k-flats in

in

Conv

denote its convex hull. A

if it satisfies either of the following conditions

There is a flat F containing

Every convex point set meeting all the members of

within which

’ is surrounded by the flat of

also meets

lying in F

.

CONCLUSIONS

These definitions will enable us to provide examples for Geometric transversal theory. We have considered a

discretized version of a manifold and the subsets of them is studied for the convexity structure.
