 Abstract
A fundamental theorem of Hadwiger classifies all rigidmotion invariant and continuous functionals on convex bodies (that is, compact convex sets) in ${\mathbb R}^n$ that satisfy the inclusionexclusion principle, $$\operatorname{Z}(K)+ \operatorname{Z}(L) =\operatorname{Z}(K\cup L) +\operatorname{Z}(K\cap L)$$ for convex bodies $K$ and $L$ such that $K\cup L$ is convex. Under weak additional assumptions, such a functional $\operatorname{Z}$ is a finitely additive measure and hence Hadwiger's theorem is a counterpart to the classification of Haar measures. Hadwiger's theorem characterizes the most important functionals within Euclidean geometry, the $n+1$ intrinsic volumes, which include volume, surface area, and the Euler characteristic. In recent years, numerous further functions and operators defined on the space of convex bodies and more generally on function spaces were characterized by their properties. An overview of these results will be given:\\ \hspace*{16pt}\parbox{16pt}{(i)} Real and tensor valuations\\ \hspace*{16pt}\parbox{16pt}{(ii)} Minkowski valuation\\ \hspace*{16pt}\parbox{16pt}{(iii)} Valuations on function spaces.\\ The focus is on valuations that intertwine the SL$(n)$ and on connections to geometric functional analysis and analytic inequalities.
