We are interested here in the geometry of an ordinary sphere. In plane geometry we study points, lines, triangles, polygons, etc. On the sphere there are no straight lines. Therefore it is natural to use great circles as replacements for lines.

Convex bodies are at once simple and amazingly rich in structure. This collection involves researchers in classical convex geometry, geometric functional analysis, computational geometry, and related areas of harmonic analysis.
