# Convex sets, metric space of

The family of compact convex sets (cf. Convex set) $F$ in a Euclidean space $E^n$ endowed with the Hausdorff metric: $$\rho(F_1,F_2) = \sup_{x\in F_1,\,y\in F_2} \{\rho(x,F_2), \rho(y,F_1) \}$$ This space is boundedly compact (cf. Blaschke selection theorem). For analogues of metric spaces of convex sets (other metrizations, non-compact sets, classes of sets, other initial spaces) see [1].
