On coverings of Euclidean space by convex sets

Gulbank D. Chakerian and H. Groemer

Vol. 75 (1978), No. 1, 77–86
Abstract

Let 𝒦 = {K1,K2,} be an infinite countable class of compact convex subsets of euclidean n-dimensional space Rn. We shall say that 𝒦 permits a space covering or, more precisely, a covering of Rn, if there are rigid motions σ12, such that Rn i=1σiKi. In this paper we concern ourselves with necessary and sufficient conditions in order that a given class 𝒦 permits a space covering.
