In mathematics, specifically in order theory and functional analysis, an element ${\displaystyle x}$ of an ordered topological vector space ${\displaystyle X}$ is called a quasi-interior point of the positive cone ${\displaystyle C}$ of ${\displaystyle X}$ if ${\displaystyle x\geq 0}$ and if the order interval ${\displaystyle [0,x]:=\{z\in Z:0\leq z{\text{ and ))z\leq x\))$ is a total subset of ${\displaystyle X}$; that is, if the linear span of ${\displaystyle [0,x]}$ is a dense subset of ${\displaystyle X.}$[1]

## Properties

If ${\displaystyle X}$ is a separable metrizable locally convex ordered topological vector space whose positive cone ${\displaystyle C}$ is a complete and total subset of ${\displaystyle X,}$ then the set of quasi-interior points of ${\displaystyle C}$ is dense in ${\displaystyle C.}$[1]

## Examples

If ${\displaystyle 1\leq p<\infty }$ then a point in ${\displaystyle L^{p}(\mu )}$ is quasi-interior to the positive cone ${\displaystyle C}$ if and only it is a weak order unit, which happens if and only if the element (which recall is an equivalence class of functions) contains a function that is ${\displaystyle >\,0}$ almost everywhere (with respect to ${\displaystyle \mu }$).[1]

A point in ${\displaystyle L^{\infty }(\mu )}$ is quasi-interior to the positive cone ${\displaystyle C}$ if and only if it is interior to ${\displaystyle C.}$[1]
