2 Let C be a compact set not containing the origin. Then there is an x 0 ∈ C such that d(x 0 , 0) = inf x∈C d(x, 0) > 0. Proof Follows from the continuity of the distance function and the Weierstrass theorem. 3 A hyperplane H = (h, β) where h ∈ Rn and β ∈ R is the set {x ∈ Rn : hx = β}. A half-space is the set {x ∈ Rn : hx ≤ β}. The set of solutions to a single equation form a hyperplane. The set of solutions to a single inequality form a half-space. 5(b) illustrates a half-space. 5 It is easy to see that a hyperplane and a half-space are both convex sets.

5 It is easy to see that a hyperplane and a half-space are both convex sets. 4 (Strict separating hyperplane theorem) Let C be a closed convex set and b ∈ C. Then there is a hyperplane (h, β) such that hb < β < hx for all x ∈ C. Proof By a translation of the coordinates we may assume that b = 0. Choose x 0 ∈ C that minimizes d(x, 0) for x ∈ C. 2, such an x 0 exists and d(x 0 , 0) > 0. 2 assumes compactness but here we do not. Here is why. Pick any y ∈ C and let C = C ∩ {x ∈ C: d(x, 0) ≤ d(y, 0)}.

10 (Farkas lemma) Let A be an m × n matrix, b ∈ Rm and F = {x ∈ Rn : Ax = b, x ≥ 0}. Then either F = ∅ or there exists y ∈ Rm such that yA ≥ 0 and yb < 0 but not both. Proof The ‘not both’part of the result is obvious. Now suppose F = ∅. Then b ∈ cone(A). Since cone(A) is convex and closed we can invoke the strict separating hyperplane theorem to identify a hyperplane, (h, β) that separates b from cone(A). Without loss of generality we can suppose that h · b < β and h · z > β for all z ∈ cone(A).
