The relationship between Lp affine surface area and curvature measures is investigated. As a result, a new representation of the existing notion of Lp affine surface area depending only on curvature measures is derived. Direct proofs of the equivalence between this new representation and those previously known are provided. The proofs show that the new representation is, in a sense, “polar” to that of Lutwak’s and “dual” to that of Schutt & Werner’s.
Recently, the duals of Federer’s curvature measures, called dual curvature measures, were discovered by Huang, Lutwak, Yang & Zhang (ACTA, 2016). In the same paper, they posed the dual Minkowski problem, the characterization problem for dual curvature measures, and proved existence results when the index, q, is in (0,n). The dual Minkowski problem includes the Aleksandrov problem (q = 0) and the logarithmic Minkowski problem (q = n) as special cases. In the current work, a complete solution to the dual Minkowski problem whenever q < 0, including both existence and uniqueness, is presented.
