The LP-Aleksandrov problem for LP-integral curvature

Yong Huang, Erwin Lutwak, Deane Yang, Gaoyong Zhang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is shown that within the Lp-Brunn–Minkowski theory that Aleksandrov’s integral curvature has a natural Lp extension, for all real p. This raises the question of finding necessary and sufficient conditions on a given measure in order for it to be the Lp-integral curvature of a convex body. This problem is solved for positive p and is answered for negative p provided the given measure is even.
