The Brunn-Minkowski-Firey inequality for nonconvex sets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The definition of Minkowski-Firey Lp-combinations is extended from convex bodies to arbitrary subsets of Euclidean space. The Brunn-Minkowski-Firey inequality (along with its equality conditions), previously established only for convex bodies, is shown to hold for compact sets.
