Generalized Convex Sets
In this chapter we first generalize convex sets by introducing the concept of starshaped sets, which is “one-step” more general than the concept of convex sets. Then we make further steps generalizing the starshaped sets to obtain path-connected sets, Φ-convex sets and some other types of generalized convex sets. The generalized convex sets will serve as a basis for defining generalized concave and convex functions, which will be introduced in the third chapter. We also pay attention to the separability of starshaped sets.
