Abstract: Let S be a compact simply connected set in the plane. Let $ K(n)$ denote the generalized convex kernel of S of order n, bd S the boundary of S, $ E(0,S)$ the set of 0-extreme points of S, and for $ x \in S$, let $ K(n,x)$ denote the nth order convex kernel of x in S. It is known that $ K(n) = \cap \{ K(n,x)\vert x \in {\text{bd}}\;S\} $ and in certain cases, it is known that $ K(1) = \cap \{ K(1,x)\vert x \in E(0,S)\} $. The main result of this paper extends the above mentioned results for certain sets. It is shown that $ K(n) = \cap \{ K(n,x)\vert x \in E(0,S)\} $ for certain compact simply connected sets S in the plane. In the process of obtaining this result, a characterization of the boundary is also obtained.
