Obviously, the Orlicz mean dual affine quermassintegrals are an extension of the mean dual affine quermassintegrals; a very natural question is raised: is there a Minkowski type isoperimetric inequality for the Orlicz mean dual affine quermassintegrals?
Among the topics there are fundamental solutions and Yamabe equations, fractional integration in spaces of homogeneous type, the geometric Sobolev embedding and the isoperimetric inequality, and a sub-Riemannian curvature-dimension inequality.

In the planar case, we suggest to bound the thickness of the minimal annulus of Z from above by an isoperimetric deficit using a strengthened isoperimetric inequality due to Bonnesen.
For instance, Garnett and Jones have proved in [15] the Corona Theorem for Denjoy domains, and in [2] and [39] the authors have got characterizations of Denjoy domains which satisfy a linear isoperimetric inequality. See also [1], [3] and [17].
