Let \(K\subset\mathbb{R}^d\) be the boundary of a convex domain symmetric to the origin. The conjecture that any continuous even function can be uniformly approximated by homogeneous polynomials of even degree on K is proven in the following cases: (a) if d = 2; (b) if K is twice continuously differentiable and has positive curvature in every point; or (c) if K is the boundary of a convex polytope.
