On compact anisotropic Weingarten hypersurfaces in Euclidean space

We show that, up to homotheties and translations, the Wulff shape \(\mathcal {W}_F\) is the only compact embedded hypersurface of the Euclidean space satisfying \(H_r^F=aH^F+b\) with \(a\geqslant 0\), \(b>0\), where \(H^F\) and \(H_r^F\) are, respectively, the anisotropic mean curvature and anisotropic r-th mean curvature associated with the function \(F:\mathbb {S}^n\longrightarrow \mathbb {R}_+^*\). Further, we show that if the \(L^2\)-norm of \(H_r^F-aH^F-b\) is sufficiently close to 0, then the hypersurface is close to the Wulff shape for the \(W^{2,2}\)-norm.
