# Radial set

In mathematics, given a linear space , a set is **radial** at the point if for every there exists a such that for every , .^{[1]} Geometrically, this means is radial at if for every a line segment emanating from in the direction of lies in , where the length of the line segment is required to be non-zero but can depend on .

The set of all points at which is radial is equal to the algebraic interior.^{[1]}^{[2]} The points at which a set is radial are often referred to as internal points.^{[3]}^{[4]}

A set is absorbing if and only if it is radial at 0.^{[1]} Some authors use the term *radial* as a synonym for *absorbing*, i. e. they call a set radial if it is radial at 0.^{[5]}
