We present several new results on closed starshaped sets in Rd which mainly refer to the kernel and the boundary structure of such sets. In particular, we introduce so-called dispensable points which, in a certain sense, play the same role for closed starshaped sets that extreme points play for convex sets. Based on this notion we prove an analogue of the famous Krein-Milman theorem.
Keywords: Asymptotic structure, cone, dispensable point, extreme point, kernel, Krein-Milman theorem, Minkowski's theorem, starshaped set, support cone.
