EXTREMUM PROPERTIES OF DUAL Lp-CENTROID BODY AND Lp-JOHN ELLIPSOID
Ma, Tong-Yi;

Abstract
For $\small{0}$<$\small{p{\leq}{\infty}}$ and a convex body $\small{K}$ in $\small{\mathbb{R}^n}$, Lutwak, Yang and Zhang defined the concept of dual $\small{L_p}$-centroid body $\small{{\Gamma}_{-p}K}$ and $\small{L_p}$-John ellipsoid $\small{E_pK}$. In this paper, we prove the following two results: (i) For any origin-symmetric convex body $\small{K}$, there exist an ellipsoid $\small{E}$ and a parallelotope $\small{P}$ such that for $\small{1{\leq}p{\leq}2}$ and $\small{0}$<$\small{q{\leq}{\infty}}$, $\small{E_qE{\supseteq}{\Gamma}_{-p}K{\supseteq}(nc_{n-2,p})^{-\frac{1}{p}}E_qP}$ and $V(E) Keywords John ellipsoid;$\small{L_p}$-John ellipsoid;new ellipsoid;dual $\small{L_p}$-centroid body;simplex; Language English Cited by References 1.
