Rigidity of equality cases in Steiner's perimeter inequality

Filippo Cagnetti, Maria Colombo, Guido De Philippis and Francesco Maggi

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 7, 1535–1593

Characterization results for equality cases and for rigidity of equality cases in Steiner’s perimeter inequality are presented. (By rigidity, we mean the situation when all equality cases are vertical translations of the Steiner symmetral under consideration.) We achieve this through the introduction of a suitable measure-theoretic notion of connectedness and a fine analysis of barycenter functions for sets of finite perimeter having segments as orthogonal sections with respect to a hyperplane.

Dedicated to Nicola Fusco, for his mentorship
