Quasi-relative interior

In topology, a branch of mathematics, the quasi-relative interior of a subset of a vector space is a refinement of the concept of the interior. Formally, if X is a linear space then the quasi-relative interior of A \subseteq X is

\operatorname{qri}(A) := \left\{x \in A: \operatorname{\overline{cone}}(A - x) \text{ is a linear subspace}\right\} \,

where \operatorname{\overline{cone}}(\cdot) denotes the closure of the conic hull.[1]

Let X is a normed vector space, if C \subset X is a convex finite-dimensional set then \operatorname{qri}(C) = \operatorname{ri}(C) such that \operatorname{ri} is the relative interior.[2]
