    Is the convex hull of a compact set still compact in the infinite dimensional space?

    I guess the convex hull of a compact set is still compact in the infinite dimensional space.
    Am I right?

    If you mean the closed convex hull you're right (if the space is complete). You have to show that the closed convex hull is precompact.
