I am interested in the set of points $x \in \mathbb{R}^n$ described by $Ax \ge 0$, $Bx \ge c$, and $x > 0$. $A$ and $B$ are $n \times n$ matrices, and $c \in \mathbb{R}^n$. I would like to know under what circumstances this set is connected.

Thanks for any advice.

What does $a\geq b$ mean when $a, b \in \Bbb R^n$? –  Arthur Oct 5 '12 at 9:23

As $\{x \mid Ax \ge 0\}$, $\{x \mid Bx \ge c\}$ and $\{x \mid x > 0\}$ are convex, their intersection is also convex and hence connected.
