Two-point symmetrization and convexity Guillaume AUBRUN and Matthieu FRADELIZI
 

Summary: Two-point symmetrization and convexity
Guillaume AUBRUN and Matthieu FRADELIZI
Abstract
We prove a conjecture of R. Schneider: the spherical caps are the only spheri-
cally convex bodies of the sphere which remain spherically convex after any two-
point symmetrization. More generally, we study the relationships between con-
vexity and two-point symmetrization in the Euclidean space and on the sphere.
Introduction
In the following, n is an integer, n  2, the Euclidean norm on R n is denoted by j:j
and the Euclidean unit sphere by S n 1 . Let H be an aĆne hyperplane, denote by
H the re ection (the orthogonal symmetry) with respect to H and by H + and H
the two closed half-spaces delimited by H . The two-point symmetrization  HK of a
subset K of R n with respect to H is de ned as follows (see Figure 1)
 HK = ((K \ H K) \ H ) [ ((K [ H K) \ H + )
