Banach space theory, Proc. Res. Workshop, Univ. Iowa 1981, 23-53 (1982).
[For the entire collection see Zbl 0496.00007.]
The authors use volume estimates in order to compute various constants associated with properties of finite dimensional Banach spaces, such as unconditional basis constant.
A unicity property, pertaining to maximal (and minimal) volume images of the unit ball of a Banach space into another one of same dimensionality is introduced.
