It is proved that the classical Laplace transform is a continuous valuation which is positively GL(n) covariant and logarithmic translation covariant. Conversely, these properties turn out to be sucient to characterize this transform.
Petty proved that a convex body in R^n has the minimal surface area amongst its SL(n)images, if, and only if, its surface area measure is isotropic. By introducing a new notion of minimal Orlicz surface area, we generalize this result to the Orlicz setting. The analog of Ball’s reverse isoperimetric inequality is established.
The notion of mixed quermassintegrals in the classical Brunn-Minkowski theory is extended to that
of Orlicz mixed quermassintegrals in the Orlicz Brunn-Minkowski theory. The analogs of the classical Cauchy-
Kubota formula, the Minkowski isoperimetric inequality and the Brunn-Minkowski inequality are established
for this new Orlicz mixed quermassintegrals.
A unified approach used to generalize classical Brunn-Minkowski
type inequalities to Lp Brunn-Minkowski type inequalities, called the Lp trans-
ference principle, is refined in this paper. As illustrations of the effectiveness
and practicability of this method, several new Lp Brunn-Minkowski type in-
equalities concerning the mixed volume, moment of inertia, quermassintegral,
projection body and capacity are established.
