The notion of a system of sets generated by a family of functionals is introduced. A generalization of the classical support function of convex subsets of \(\mathbb R ^d\) allows to transfer the concept of the convex hull to these systems of sets. Approximation properties of the generalized convex hull and its use for practical computations are investigated.
