Combinatorial properties of convex cones in  \mathbf R<sup>n</sup>


In this paper we obtain sets of conditions under which the convex hull of a family of convex copies is an acute cone. Some intersectional results for families of convex sets there are also given. Finally, using two combinatorial results concerning families of convex cones, a lower bound for the Ramsey numbers R_{2n}(m,3n) is established.
