Convex Solids with Hyperplanar Shadow-Boundaries
Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, George Mason University, 4400 University Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030, U.S.A.
Extending the well-known characteristic property of solid ellipsoids as convex bodies with hyperplanar shadow-boundaries, we describe all n-dimensional closed convex sets in Rn whose shadow-boundaries satisfy certain conditions of hyperplanarity.
Keywords: Convex, body, ellipsoid, hypersurface, sharp shadow-boundary, solid, quadric.
