Abstract: It is shown that two induced norms are the same if and only if the corresponding norm numerical ranges or radii are the same, which in turn is equivalent to the vector states and mixed states arising from the norms being the same. The proofs depend on an auxiliary result of independent interest which concerns when two closed convex sets in a topological vector space are multiples of each other.
