### Is the minimum angle between a cone and a vector achieved on an extreme ray?

No. Consider $v=(0,0,-1)$ (yellow) and the two-dimensional cone with extreme rays $(1,1,0)$ (red) and $(1,-1,0)$ (blue). The angle is minimised for the cone element $(0,1,0)$ (green).

### Proving the "centroid" property and the existence of corresponding convex polyhedron in Minkowski Problem

The first identity is a consequence of the fact that volume is translation invariant. For each each face $F_i$, let $h_i$ be $n_i\cdot x$ for any $x \in F_i$. The volume of the polyhedron is  \frac{...

### Proving the "centroid" property and the existence of corresponding convex polyhedron in Minkowski Problem

The identity $\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^k A_i \mathbf{n}_i = 0$ can be proven using the divergence theorem which states that the surface integral of a vector field $\mathbf{F}(x,y,z)$ over a closed ...
