It is well known that isoperimetric inequalities imply in a very general measuremetric-space setting appropriate concentration inequalities. The former bound the boundary measure of sets as a function of their measure, whereas the latter bound the measure of sets separated from sets having half the total measure, as a function of their mutual distance. We(More)
We prove an isoperimetric inequality for uniformly log-concave measures and for the uniform measure on a uniformly convex body. These inequalities imply the log-Sobolev inequalities proved by Bobkov and Ledoux [12] and Bobkov and Zegarlinski [13]. We also recover a concentration inequality for uniformly convex bodies, similar to that proved by Gromov and(More)
In [Kol00], A. Koldobsky asked whether two types of generalizations of the notion of an intersection-body, are in fact equivalent. The structures of these two types of generalized intersection-bodies have been studied in [Mil06b], providing substantial evidence for a positive answer to this question. The purpose of this note is to construct a(More)
Elementary proofs of sharp isoperimetric inequalities on a normed space (R, ‖·‖) equipped with a measure μ = w(x)dx so that w is homogeneous are provided, along with a characterization of the corresponding equality cases. When p ∈ (0,∞] and in addition w is assumed concave, the result is an immediate corollary of the Borell–Brascamp–Lieb extension of the(More)
We study the structures of two types of generalizations of intersection-bodies and the problem of whether they are in fact equivalent. Intersection-bodies were introduced by Lutwak and played a key role in the solution of the Busemann-Petty problem. A natural geometric generalization of this problem considered by Zhang, led him to introduce one type of(More)
We develop a technique using dual mixed-volumes to study the isotropic constants of some classes of spaces. In particular, we recover, strengthen and generalize results of Ball and Junge concerning the isotropic constants of subspaces and quotients of Lp and related spaces. An extension of these results to negative values of p is also obtained, using(More)
