Bezdek, K.; Kiss, Gy.
 On the X-ray Number of Almost Smooth Convex Bodies and of Convex Bodies of Constant Width The X-ray numbers of some classes of convex bodies are investigated. In particular, we give a proof of the X-ray Conjecture as well as of the Illumination Conjecture for almost smooth convex bodies of any dimension and for convex bodies of constant width of dimensions $3$, $4$, $5$ and $6$. Keywords:almost smooth convex body, convex body of constant width, weakly neighbourly antipodal convex polytope, Illumination Conjecture, X-ray number, X-ray ConjectureCategories:52A20, 52A37, 52C17, 52C35

 On the Bezdek--Pach Conjecture for Centrally Symmetric Convex Bodies The Bezdek--Pach conjecture asserts that the maximum number of pairwise touching positive homothetic copies of a convex body in $\Re^d$ is $2^d$. Nasz\'odi proved that the quantity in question is not larger than $2^{d+1}$. We present an improvement to this result by proving the upper bound $3\cdot2^{d-1}$ for centrally symmetric bodies. Bezdek and Brass introduced the one-sided Hadwiger number of a convex body. We extend this definition, prove an upper bound on the resulting quantity, and show a connection with the problem of touching homothetic bodies.
