Title: Discrete Geometry in Minkowski Spaces
Abstract:
In recent decades, many papers appeared in which typical problems of Discrete Geometry are investigated, but referring to the more general setting of finite dimensional real Banach spaces (i.e., to Minkowski Geometry). In several cases such problems are investigated in the even more general context of spaces with so-called asymmetric norms (gauges).
In many cases the extension of basic geometric notions, needed for posing these problems in non-Euclidean Banach spaces, is already interesting enough.
