Embeddings of compact convex sets and locally compact cones

Jimmie Don Lawson

Vol. 66 (1976), No. 2, 443–453

The main result of this paper is that a compact convex set with a basis of neighborhoods (not necessarily open) at each point which are convex can be embedded in a locally convex separated topological vector space. An analogous result is proved for locally compact cones. Along the way it is shown that any compact convex set can be embedded as a base of a locally compact cone in a separated topological vector space, and that the various notions of local convexity coincide in a compact convex set.
