In functional analysis, a branch of mathematics, the algebraic interior or radial kernel of a subset of a vector space is a refinement of the concept of the interior. It is the subset of points contained in a given set with respect to which it is absorbing, i.e. the radial points of the set.[1] The elements of the algebraic interior are often referred to as internal points.[2][3]

Formally, if is a linear space then the algebraic interior of is


Note that in general , but if is a convex set then . If is a convex set then if then .


If then , but and .


Let then:

  • is absorbing if and only if .[1]
  • [5]
  • if [5]

Relation to interior

Let be a topological vector space, denote the interior operator, and then:

  • If is nonempty convex and is finite-dimensional, then [2]
  • If is convex with non-empty interior, then [6]
  • If is a closed convex set and is a complete metric space, then [7]
