Asymptotic order of the parallel volume difference

  • In this paper we continue the investigation of the asymptotic behavior of the parallel volume in Minkowski spaces as the distance tends to infinity that was started in [13]. We will show that the difference of the parallel volume of the convex hull of a body and the parallel volume of the body itself can at most have order \(r^{d-2}\) in dimension \(d\). Then we will show that in the Euclidean case this difference can at most have order \(r^{d-3}\). We will also examine the asymptotic behavior of the derivative of this difference as the distance tends to infinity. After this we will compute the derivative of \(f_\mu (rK)\) in \(r\), where \(f_\mu\) is the Wills functional or a similar functional, \(K\) is a fixed body and \(rK\) is the Minkowski-product of \(r\) and \(K\). Finally we will use these results to examine Brownian paths and Boolean models and derive new proofs for formulae for intrinsic volumes.
