Steiner’s Formula

  • Alfred Gray
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 221)


In 1840 J. Steiner [Sr] studied convex regions in 2- and 3-dimensional Euclidean space; he obtained a formula for the volume of the convex regionB r consisting of those points whose distance from a given convex region B is less than or equal to r. In this chapter we put Steiner’s Formula into the same general framework as Weyl’s Tube Formula.
