Definitions for "convex"
Keywords:  outward, concave, bulge, curve, sphere
Bowed, as in the shape of a curve. Usually refers to the price/yield relationship for interest-bearing bonds.
Rising or swelling into a spherical or rounded form; regularly protuberant or bulging; -- said of a spherical surface or curved line when viewed from without, in opposition to concave.
A convex body or surface.
A polygon is convex if no straight line in the plane of the polygon intersects the polygon more than twice.
A polygon is convex if a segment joining any two interior points of the polygon is in the interior of the polygon.
A convex polygon or polyhedron contains no holes or indentions. If one constructs a line segment between any two points of a convex object, then every point on the line segment is part of the object. The pentagram is a non-convex polygon; the Kepler-Poinsot solids are non-convex polyhedra.
Said of a new camshaft lifter. The lifter bottom is rounded with the lowest point occurring near the center, so it will contact the camshaft lobe somewhere near its center, rather than wearing the edges.
Keywords:  airfoil, suction, side
suction side of an airfoil.
Keywords:  shortest, metric, subset, lies, path
A subset of metric space is called convex if for any two points in there is a shortest path connecting them which lies entirely in , see also totally convex.
Keywords:  sticking
Sticking out
Keywords:  converge, route, draw, straight, leaves
When an 2D/3D-object is convex, you can draw a straight line through it, and it enters the 2D/3D-object only one time on its route through, and leaves it only one time. The opposite of convex is converge.
