Valuations on Concave Functions and Log-Concave Functions

  • Lijuan LiuEmail author


Recently, the theory of valuations on function spaces has been rapidly growing. It is more general than the classical theory of valuations on convex bodies. In this paper, all continuous, SL(n) and translation invariant valuations on concave functions and log-concave functions are completely classified, respectively.

Key words
