Ehrhart's conjecture proposes a sharp upper bound on the volume of a convex body whose barycenter is its only interior lattice point. Recently, Berman and Berndtsson proved this conjecture for a class of rational polytopes including reflexive polytopes. In particular, they showed that the complex projective space has the maximal anticanonical degree among all toric Kaehler-Einstein Fano manifolds. In this note, we prove that projective space is the only such toric manifold with maximal degree… 

Optimal bounds for the volumes of Kähler-Einstein Fano manifolds

abstract:We show that any $n$-dimensional Ding semistable Fano manifold $X$ satisfies that the anti-canonical volume is less than or equal to the value $(n+1)^n$. Moreover, the equality holds if and

Some characterizations of the complex projective space via Ehrhart polynomials

. Let P λ Σ n be the Ehrhart polynomial associated to an intergal multiple λ of the standard symplex Σ n ⊂ R n . In this paper we prove that if ( M,L ) is an n -dimensional polarized toric manifold

On extensions of Minkowski's theorem on successive minima

Minkowski's 2nd theorem in the Geometry of Numbers provides optimal upper and lower bounds for the volume of a $o$-symmetric convex body in terms of its successive minima. In this paper we study

Improved bounds for Hadwiger’s covering problem via thin-shell estimates

A central problem in discrete geometry, known as Hadwiger's covering problem, asks what the smallest natural number $N\left(n\right)$ is such that every convex body in ${\mathbb R}^{n}$ can be

Lattice Point Inequalities for Centered Convex Bodies

TLDR
An upper bound is provided, which extends the centrally symmetric case and shows that the centroid assumption is indeed much more restrictive than an assumption on the number of interior lattice points even for the class of lattice polytopes.

On measures of symmetry and floating bodies

We consider the following measure of symmetry of a convex n-dimensional body K: $\rho(K)$ is the smallest constant for which there is a point x in K such that for partitions of K by an

The volume of K\"ahler-Einstein Fano varieties and convex bodies

We show that the complex projective space has maximal degree (volume) among all n-dimensional Kahler-Einstein Fano manifolds admitting a holomorphic C^*-action with a finite number of fixed points.

Greatest lower bounds on the Ricci curvature of Fano manifolds

Abstract On a Fano manifold M we study the supremum of the possible t such that there is a Kähler metric ω∈c1(M) with Ricci curvature bounded below by t. This is shown to be the same as the maximum

Examples of non-symmetric K\"ahler-Einstein toric Fano manifolds

In this note we report on examples of 7- and 8-dimensional toric Fano manifolds that are not symmetric and still admit a Kaehler-Einstein metric. This answers a question first posed by V.V. Batyrev

Complete toric varieties with reductive automorphism group

We give equivalent and sufficient criteria for the automorphism group of a complete toric variety, respectively a Gorenstein toric Fano variety, to be reductive. In particular we show that the

Complete classification of reflexive polyhedra in four dimensions

Four dimensional reflexive polyhedra encode the data for smooth Calabi-Yau threefolds that are hypersurfaces in toric varieties, and have important applications both in perturbative and in
