## Polytopes — Combinatorics and Computation by Günter M. Ziegler (auth.), Gil Kalai, Günter M. Ziegler

By Günter M. Ziegler (auth.), Gil Kalai, Günter M. Ziegler (eds.)

Questions that arose from linear programming and combinatorial optimization were a motive force for contemporary polytope idea, akin to the diameter questions influenced via the will to appreciate the complexity of the simplex set of rules, or the necessity to learn aspects to be used in slicing aircraft systems. moreover, algorithms now give you the capability to computationally research polytopes, to compute their parameters akin to flag vectors, graphs and volumes, and to build examples of enormous complexity. The papers of this quantity hence demonstrate a large landscape of connections of polytope idea with different fields. components akin to discrete and computational geometry, linear and combinatorial optimization, and medical computing have contributed a mix of questions, rules, effects, algorithms and, ultimately, computing device programs.
