Item description for Excursions into Combinatorial Geometry (Universitext) by Vladimir Boltyanski...
The book deals with the combinatorial geometry of convex bodies in finite-dimensional spaces. A general introduction to geometric convexity is followed by the investigation of d-convexity and H-convexity, and by various applications. Recent research is discussed, for example the three (generally unsolved) problems from the combinatorial geometry of convex bodies: the Szoekefalvi-Nagy problem, the Borsuk problem, the Hadwiger covering problem. These and related questions are then applied to a new class of convex bodies which is a natural generalization of the class of zonoids: the class of belt bodies. Finally open research problems are discussed.
