Support properties of a family of connected compact sets. (English) Zbl 0982.15003

Summary: A problem of finding a system of proportionally located parallel supporting hyperplanes of a family of connected compact sets is analyzed. Special attention is paid to finding a common supporting halfspace. An existence theorem is proved and a method of solution is proposed.
