The smallest convex set containing a given collection of points in a real linear space. Also known as convex linear hull.
For a set S in space, the smallest
convex set containing S. In the plane, the convex hull can
be visualized as the shape assumed by a rubber band that has
been stretched around the set S and released to conform as
closely as possible to S.
