Convex Polytopes: Seperation, Expansion, Chordality, and Approximations of Smooth Bodies

I am happy to report on two beautiful results on convex polytopes. One disproves an old conjecture of mine and one proves an old conjecture of mine. Loiskekoski and Ziegler: Simple polytopes without small separators. Does Lipton-Tarjan’s theorem extends to high … Continue reading

Many triangulated three-spheres!

The news Eran Nevo and Stedman Wilson have constructed triangulations with n vertices of the 3-dimensional sphere! This settled an old problem which stood open for several decades. Here is a link to their paper How many n-vertex triangulations does the 3 … Continue reading

Satoshi Murai and Eran Nevo proved the Generalized Lower Bound Conjecture.

Satoshi Murai and Eran Nevo have just proved the 1971 generalized lower bound conjecture of McMullen and Walkup, in their  paper On the generalized lower bound conjecture for polytopes and spheres . Let me tell you a little about it. … Continue reading
