# The p-cones in dimension n>=3 are not homogeneous when p \neq 2

Using the T-algebra machinery we show that the only strictly convex homogeneous cones in R^n with n >= 3 are the 2-cones, also known as Lorentz cones or second order cones. In particular, this shows that the p-cones are not homogeneous when p is not 2, 1 < p <\infty and n >= 3, thus answering a problem proposed by Gowda and Trott.
