9 it follows that if F has more than one component, then there are exactly two components and they are hyperplanes. If the solid polyhedron F is a bounded set in En+l, then its boundary of is called a closed convex polyhedron. If F is a solid infinite convex polyhedron, then of is called an infinite convex polyhedron. We will also call convex polyhedra in En+I n-convex polyhedra. Ever convex polyhedron S can be decomposed into the finite union of n-solid convex polyhedra lying in some hyperplanes.
The vertices of V can be only the points AI, A2"'" Ak-I' We denote by B l , B2"'" Bs the faces of V. If Ak E V, then the convex hull of points AI, A 2, ... , A k- l , Ak coincides with V and Ak is not a vertex of V. Therefore assume that Ak does not belong to V. Let W be the convex hull ofthe points A l ,A2, ... ,Ak- l , Ak. 1) a=l where 'Ira is the pyramid with the vertex A and the base Ba. 2) because V C Wand every segment AmZ is contained in W, where Z is any point of V.
