Abstract: The geometry of convex hypersurfaces in real affine space is analyzed using the affine conormal. A weak version of Chern's conjecture, characterizing paraboloids among convex graphs, is proved. In addition, it is shown that a closed convex affine hypersurface with constant affine total curvature is an ellipsoid.
