It is well known that the set of centers of minimal balls containing a convex body is a singleton, but the set of incenters of that body, i.e., its kernel, need not be a singleton. On the other hand, the kernel cannot have the same dimension as the body itself. By iterating the construction of the kernel we define a new selector, the kernel center, which selects a point from the kernel of a given convex body. Evidently, this selector is constant when restricted to the family of parallel bodies of a fixed convex body. We prove that it is directly additive but not additive, and we study further properties of this selector.
