Abstract

Let $V$ be an $n$-dimensional real Banach space and let $\lambda(V)$ denote its absolute projection constant. For any $N \in \Bbb{N}$ with $ N \geq n$ define $$\eqalign{ \lambda_n^N &= \sup\{ \lambda(V): \dim(V)= n,\, V \subset l_{\infty}^{(N)} \},\cr \lambda_n &= \sup\{ \lambda(V): \dim(V)= n \}. \cr}$$ A well-known Grünbaum conjecture [Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 95 (1960)] says that $$ \lambda_2 = 4/3. $$ König and Tomczak-Jaegermann [J. Funct. Anal. 119 (1994)] made an attempt to prove this conjecture. Unfortunately, their Proposition 3.1, used in the proof, is incorrect. In this paper a complete proof of the Grünbaum conjecture is presented
