The centre symmetry set

A centrally symmetric plane curve has a point called it’s centre of symmetry. We define (following Janeczko) a set which measures the central symmetry of an arbitrary strictly convex plane curve, or surface in R 3 . We investigate some of it’s properties, and begin the study of non-convex cases.
