The inner aperture of a convex set

Arne Brøndsted

Vol. 72 (1977), No. 2, 335–340
Abstract

It is a standard fact that the asymptotic cone O(C) of a convex set C in Rn is the polar of the barrier cone B(C). In the present note we show that the inner aperture P(C) of C may be obtained from B(C) in a similar manner. We use this result to study relations between O(C) and P(C), and to give a short proof of D. G. Larman’s characterization of inner apertures.
