Abstract: This study will investigate the dimension of the kernel of a starshaped set, and the following result will be obtained: Let *S* be a compact set in some linear topological space *L*. For , the dimension of is at least *k* if and only if for some and some *n*-dimensional flat in *L*, every points of *S* see via *S* a common *k*-dimensional neighborhood in having radius . The number is defined inductively as follows:
