A characterization of constant width in Minkowski planes
- 36 Downloads
Generalizing a result of A. Heppes [Hep59] we obtain the following characterization theorem: a convex body K in a Minkowski plane (i.e., in a real, two-dimensional Banach space) is of constant Minkowskian width if and only if every chord of it splits K into two compact sets such that one of them has diameter equal to the length of this chord.
