Integer Points in Parallelepipeds

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 785)


Let K be a compact convex set in En, symmetric about \( \mathop 0\limits_ = \), and suppose that \( \mathop 0\limits_ = \) lies in the interior of K. We call such a set a convex body. Let V(K) denote the volume of K. (By the volume of K we mean the Riemann integral of the characteristic function of K. It can be proved that every convex body has a volume in this sense. Alternatively, the existence of the volume of K may be added as a hypothesis.)
