Abstract: Mahler’s conjecture asks whether the cube is a minimizer for the volume product of a body and its polar in the class of symmetric convex bodies in $\mathbb {R}^n$. The inequality corresponding to the conjecture is sometimes called the reverse Blaschke-Santaló inequality. The conjecture is known to be true in $\mathbb {R}^2$ and for several special cases. In the class of unconditional convex bodies, Saint-Raymond confirmed the conjecture, and Meyer and Reisner, independently, characterized the equality case. In this paper we present a stability version of these results and also show that any symmetric convex body, which is sufficiently close to an unconditional body, satisfies the reverse Blaschke-Santaló inequality.
