On convex envelopes and underestimators for bivariate functions

In this paper we discuss convex underestimators for bivariate functions. We first present a method for deriving convex envelopes over the simplest two-dimensional polytopes, i.e., triangles. Next, we propose a technique to compute the value at some point of the convex envelope over a general two-dimensional polytope, together with a supporting hyperplane of the convex … Read more
