## Abstract

Let H be a Coxeter hyperplane arrangement in n-dimensional Euclidean space. Assume that the negative of the identity map belongs to the associated Coxeter group W. Furthermore assume that the arrangement is not of type A_{1}^{n}. Let K be a measurable subset of the Euclidean space with finite volume which is stable by the Coxeter group W and let a be a point such that K contains the convex hull of the orbit of the point a under the group W. In a previous article the authors proved the generalized pizza theorem: that the alternating sum over the chambers T of H of the volumes of the intersections T ∩ (K + a) is zero. In this paper we give a dissection proof of this result. In fact, we lift the identity to an abstract dissection group to obtain a similar identity that replaces the volume by any valuation that is invariant under affine isometries. This includes the cases of all intrinsic volumes. Apart from basic geometry, the main ingredient is a previous theorem of the authors where we relate the alternating sum of the values of certain valuations over the chambers of a Coxeter arrangement to similar alternating sums for simpler subarrangements called 2-structures, introduced by Herb to study discrete series characters of real reduced groups.
