Una proprietà di massimo dei poligoni affinemente regolari

  • Marco Longinetti


We consider an affinely invariant functional on the classP m of the plane convex polygons, withm sides,m>4. We give, for allm, a geometrical property of the maximizing polygons. Form=5, 6 the maximum is attained if and only if the polygons are affinely regular. The maximum inP 2n is a bound of another functional which arises in reconstructing plane convex bodies from the length of its chords alongn directions.
