Convex body, Projection, Section, Direct homothety, Similarity, Affine equivalence
By examining an example constructed by Petty and McKinney, we show that there are pairs of centered and coaxial bodies of revolution in Ed, d ≥ 3, whose projections onto each two-dimensional subspace are similar, but which are not themselves even affinely equivalent.
