On the structure of convex sets with applications to the moduli of spherical minimal immersions

Abstract: We study the properties of certain affine invariant measures of symmetry associated to a compact convex body $\cl$ in a Euclidean vector space. As functions of the interior of $\cal L$, these measures of symmetry are proved or disproved to be concave in specific situations, notably for the reduced moduli of spherical minimal immersions.

Keywords: convex set, distortion, measures of symmetry

Classification (MSC2000): 53C42
