### Abstract

A Hadamard variational formula for p-capacity of convex bodies in Rn is established when 1 < p< n. The formula is applied to solve the Minkowski problem for p-capacity which involves a degenerate Monge-Ampère type equation. Uniqueness for the Minkowski problem for p-capacity is established when 1 < p< n and existence and regularity when 1 < p< 2. These results are (non-linear) extensions of the now classical solution of Jerison of the Minkowski problem for electrostatic capacity (p = 2).
