Remark on Stability of Brunn–Minkowski and Isoperimetric Inequalities for Convex Bodies
This paper is a note on the work of Figalli, Maggi and Pratelli, regarding the stability of Brunn–Minkowski and the isoperimetric inequalities. By a careful examination of the methods presented in the mentioned papers, we slightly improve the constants that appear in stability versions of these inequalities, which play an important role in asymptotic geometric analysis. In addition we discuss a stability version of Urysohn’s inequality and the relation to Dar’s conjecture.
