### Characterization of $l_p$ up to a linear isometry

There is a science called "Geometry of Banach spaces". I wonder if they managed to give a geometric characterization of $\ell_p$ ($p\in[1,\infty]$) up to isometric isomorphism (among all Banach ...

### Extenstions of Urysohn's inequality

A version of Urysohn's inequality states that for a symmetric convex body $K \subset \mathbb{R}^n$, one has
$$
\left(\frac{\text{vol}(K)}{\text{vol}(B_2)} \right)^{1/n} \le \frac{1}{\sqrt{n}} E
\; \| ...

### Hilbert metric of a sum of cones

Suppose that $K_{1}$ and $K_{2}$ are pointed closed cones in a finite-dimensional space $V$ whose Hilbert metrics $d_{1},d_{2}$ are known. Is there a way to express the Hilbert metric of $K_{1}+K_{2}$ ...

### Extensions of Carathéodory's theorem

We know about the Carathéodory's theorem which is on the convex bodies of $\mathbb{R}^d$. My question is, how far we can extend it? Is it true for say, any convex object of Banach space, or for convex ...

### Point on a line nearest a point in Banach space

I have a Banach space geometry question (a curiosity-driven spin-off from a research topic). Given a point $x$ on the unit sphere of a Banach space and a vector $y\ne 0$, there is a multiple $t_0y$ of ...

### Does the dual Banach space $B(\ell^\infty)$ has weak* normal structure?

Let $K$ be a bounded closed convex subset of a Banach space $E$. A point $x$ in $K$ is called a diametral point if
$$
\sup_{y\in K} ||x-y||=diam(K).
$$
where $diam(K)$ denotes the diameter of $K$.

### Diameter of a metric on orbits under affine bijections of $n-$dimensional convex compact sets

Given two $n-$dimensional convex compact sets $A,B$, we define $d(A,B)$ as $\log({\mathrm{Vol}}(\alpha_2(A)))-\log(\mathrm{Vol}(\alpha_1(A)))$ where $\alpha_1,\alpha_2$ are two affine bijections such ...

### Continuous automorphism groups of normed vector spaces?

Consider the metric space on, say, ℝ2 induced by the various $L^p$ norms, and the group of isometries from that space into itself that preserve the origin. When $p=2$ I get the continuous group ...
