This number of surveys is composed partly of extensions of papers awarded on the meetings on convexity on the Technische Universitat Wien (July 1981) and on the Universitat Siegen (July 1982) and partly of articles written on the invitation of the editors. This quantity including the sooner quantity «Contributions to Geometry» edited via Tolke and Wills and released via Birkhauser in 1979 should still supply a reasonably sturdy account of a few of the extra very important points of convexity and its purposes. in addition to being an up-to-the-minute reference paintings this quantity can be utilized as a complicated treatise on convexity and similar fields. We clearly wish that it'll encourage destiny study. Fenchel, in his paper, provides an ancient account of convexity displaying many very important yet no longer so popular elements. The articles of Papini and Phelps relate convexity to difficulties of sensible research on nearest issues, nonexpansive maps and the extremal constitution of convex units. A bridge to mathematical physics within the experience of Polya and Szego is supplied by way of the survey of Bandle on isoperimetric inequalities, and Bachem's paper illustrates the significance of convexity for optimization. The contribution of Coxeter bargains with a classical subject in geometry, the strains at the cubic floor while Leichtweiss exhibits the shut connections among convexity and differential geometry. The exhaustive survey of Chalk on element lattices is expounded to algebraic quantity thought. a subject matter very important for functions in biology, geology etc.

Area of K E e 2 perimeter of K E e 2 gauge body of a Minkowskian metric in En Q-width of KEen in direction u Basic geometric properties We start with several characteristic properties of convex bodies of constant width in En of arbitrary dimension and then discuss the analogous properties for Minkowski spaces. Following this we describe various other properties. According to definition, a set KEen is of constant width b if and only if w(K,u) = h(K,u) + h(K, - u) = b for all u E sn - 1. Since the support function of the centrally symmetrized body K* is h(K*,u) = t(h(K,u) + h(K,-u») it follows immediately that K has constant width b exactly if w(K*,u) = b for all u E sn-l.
