Algebraic interior

In functional analysis, a branch of mathematics, the algebraic interior or radial kernel of a subset of a vector space is a refinement of the concept of the interior. It is the subset of points contained in a given set with respect to which it is absorbing, i.e. the radial points of the set.[1] The elements of the algebraic interior are often referred to as internal points.[2][3]

Formally, if is a linear space then the algebraic interior of is


Note that in general , but if is a convex set then . If is a convex set then if then .


If such that then , but and .


Let then:

Relation to interior

Let be a topological vector space, denote the interior operator, and then:
