On areas and integral geometry in Minkowski spaces. (English) Zbl 0889.52005
The author continues the investigations of R. Schneider and J. A. Wieacker [Adv. Math. 129, 222-260 (1997)] on integral geometric results in Minkowski spaces and shows the existence of Minkowski spaces for which a Crofton formula for lower-dimensional areas with an associated Crofton measure is only possible (among all axiomatically defined Minkowskian areas) for the Holmes-Thompson area. Other results concern Minkowskian counterparts to translative integral formulae (in Euclidean dean space). They are formulated either in hypermetric spaces or use mixed volumes of associated zonoids.
