Do we have enough examples of convex bodies that we truly understand? Is out standard set of examples diverse enough to understand convexity? In this note, we will dramatically increase our set of examples. More specifically, we will present several new constructions of convex bodies: the geometric mean of two convex bodies, the power function Kα (which in general exists only for |α|≤1), and even the logarithm logK.
