This book is mostly about linear programming. However, this subject, important as it is, is just a subset of a larger subject called convex analysis. In this chapter, we shall give a brief introduction to this broader subject. In particular, we shall prove a few of the fundamental results of convex analysis and see that their proofs depend on some of the theory of linear programming that we have already developed.
