    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

We define a one-parametric family of positions of a centrally symmetric convex body K which interpolates between the John position and the Loewner position: for r>0, we say that K is in maximal intersection position of radius r if Vol n (K ∩ rB n 2 ) ≥ Vol n (K ∩ rTB n 2 ) for all T ∈ SL n . We show that under mild conditions on K, each such position induces a corresponding isotropic measure on the sphere, which is simply the normalized Lebesgue measure on r −1 K ∩ S n−1 . Inparticular, for r M satisfying r n M κ n =Vol n (K), the maximal intersection position of radius r M is an M-position, so we get an M-position with an associated isotropic measure. Lastly, we give an interpretation of John’s theorem on contact points as a limit case of the measures induced from the maximal intersection positions.
