The projection body of order one
of a convex body
is the body whose support function is, up to a constant, the average mean width of the orthogonal projections of
onto hyperplanes through the origin.
The paper contains an inequality for the support function of
, which implies in particular that such a function is strictly convex, unless
has dimension one or two. Furthermore, an existence problem related to the reconstruction of a convex body is discussed to highlight the different behavior of the area measures of order one and of order
The classical Minkowski sum of convex sets is defined by the sum of the corresponding support functions. The Lp-extension of such a definition makes use of the sum of the pth power of the support functions. An Lp-zonotope Zp is the p-sum of finitely many segments and is isometric to the unit ball of a subspace of ℓq, where 1/p + 1/q = 1. In this paper, a sharp upper estimate is given of the volume of Zp in terms of the volume of Z1, as well as a sharp lower estimate of the volume of the polar of Zp in terms of the same quantity. In particular, for p = 1, the latter result provides a new approach to Reisner's inequality for the Mahler conjecture in the class of zonoids.
The volume of the Lp-centroid body of a convex body K ⊂ ℝd is a convex function of a time-like parameter when each chord of K parallel to a fixed direction moves with constant speed. This fact is used to study extrema of some affine invariant functionals involving the volume of the Lp-centroid body and related to classical open problems like the slicing problem. Some variants of the Lp-Busemann-Petty centroid inequality are established. The reverse form of these inequalities is proved in the two-dimensional case.
The paper shows that no origin-symmetric convex polyhedron in R3 is the intersection body of a star body. It is shown also that every originsymmetric convex body in Rd, for d = 3 and 4, can be seen as the intersection body of a star-shaped set whose radial function satisfies conditions related to suitable non-integer Sobolev classes.
The paper deals with the problem of estimating the distance, in radial or Hausdorff metrics, between two centred star bodies of Rd, d≤3, in terms of the distance between the corresponding intersection bodies.
The problem is the reconstruction of the shape of an object, whose shell is a surface star-shaped with respect to a point 0, from the knowledge of the volume of every “half-object” obtained by taking any plane through 0. Conditions for the existence and uniqueness of the solution are given. The main result consists in showing that any uniform a-priori bound on the mean curvature of the shell reestablishes continuous dependence on the data for bodies satisfying a certain symmetry condition.
