The notion of "valuations" on convex bodies in the Euclidean space originates from Dehn's solution of Hilbert's problem of equidissectability of polytopes of equal volume. Typical examples are volume or the number of lattice points inside, and in general, the interesting question is to understand the ones intertwining some classical group. We discuss relations of this notion to representation theory and toric varieties.
