Definition: S = { x R n : ax b } is called a (closed) half space . Definition: A polyhedron P R n is the set of points that satisfy a finite number of linear independent inequalities, i.e. P = { x R n : Ax b } . Definition: A polyhedron P R n is bounded if there exists a constant K such that  x i  K , i = 1 ,..., n for all x P . Definition: A bounded polyhedron is called a polytope . Definition: A set S R n is said to be convex if conv ( S ) = S . Proposition: All polyhedra are convex. Zhang IEE 376 Introduction to OR 2 / 14 Review: Polyhedral Theory Definition: The dimension of a polyhedron P , denoted by dim ( P ) , is k if the maximum number of affinely independent points in P is k + 1. Example: dim ( { x } ) = , where x R n . dim ( {} ) = . Definition: A polyhedron P R n is said to be fulldimensional if dim ( P ) = n . Let P = { x R n : Ax b } = { x R n : a i x b i , i M } , where M = { 1 , ..., m } . M = = { i M : a i x = b i , x P } , Equality set. M = M \ M = , Inequality set. Let ( A = , b = ) , ( A , b ) be the corresponding rows of ( A , b ) . Zhang IEE 376 Introduction to OR 3 / 14 Review: Polyhedral Theory Definition: x P is called an inner point if a i x < b i for all i M . Definition: x P is called an interior point if a i x < b i for all i M ....
