A vector u is an convex combination of vectors v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k when there are nonnegative scalars c 1 , c 2 , . . . , c k so that c 1 + c 2 + . . . + c k = 1 and u = c 1 v 1 + c 2 v 2 + . . . + c k v k . The convex hull of v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k is the set of all convex combinations of v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k . A nonempty set U of vectors is an convex set when U contains all convex combinations of vectrors v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k U . The parallelopiped spanned by v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k is the set of all linear combinations u = c 1 v 1 + c 2 v 2 + . . . + c k v k where 0 c i 1 for all i = 1 , 2 , . . . , k ....
