Inner products for Convex Bodies

  title={Inner products for Convex Bodies},
  author={David Bryant and Petru A. Cioica-Licht and Lisa Orloff Clark and Rachael Young},
  journal={arXiv: Metric Geometry},
We define a set inner product to be a function on pairs of convex bodies which is symmetric, Minkowski linear in each dimension, positive definite, and satisfies the natural analogue of the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality (which is not implied by the other conditions). We show that any set inner product can be embedded into an inner product space on the associated support functions, thereby extending fundamental results of Hormander and Radstrom. The set inner product provides a geometry on the…

Diversities and the Generalized Circumradius
The generalized circumradius of a set of points A ⊆ R with respect to a convex body K equals the minimum value of λ ≥ 0 such that A is contained in a translate of λK. Each choice of K gives a


On the Sobolev distance of convex bodies
SummaryLetKd denote the cone of all convex bodies in the Euclidean spaceKd. The mappingK ↦ hK of each bodyK ∈Kd onto its support function induces a metricδw onKd byδ"w(K, L)≔∥hL−hK∥w where ∥⋅∥w is
Embedding theorems for classes of convex sets
Rådström's embedding theorem states that the nonempty compact convex subsets of a normed vector space can be identified with points of another normed vector space such that the embedding map is
