    This paper undertakes to analyze and explain the paper "Partially Fnite Convex Programming, Part I: Quasi Relative Interiors and Duality Theory" by authors J.M. Borwein and A.S. Lewis. It begins with an overview of some basic notions of convex analysis and goes on to address the challenges which motivate the development of the principle concept discussed therein, namely the quasi-relative interior. It goes on to provide an overview of the notion of the convex conjugate with several illustrative examples. It reproduces and explains the major results of the article with a level of detail easily understood by a graduate level analysis student. For ease of reference, it closely follows the order of the original paper.
