Convex Surfaces with Planar Polar Sets and Point-Source Shadow-Boundaries
Department of Mathematical Sciences, George Mason University, 4400 University Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030, U.S.A.
Generalizing certain characteristic properties of ellipsoids, we describe all convex hypersurfaces in the n-dimensional real space, possibly unbounded, whose polar sets and point-source shadow-boundaries satisfy planarity conditions.
Keywords: Body, convex, ellipsoid, polar set, quadric hypersurface, shadow-boundary, solid.
