### Finite union of closed convex sets is triangulable?

I posted this question on Stackoverflow, but didn't get an answer.
Let $A_1, \ldots, A_k \subseteq \mathbb{R}^n$ be closed convex sets. Is the union $\bigcup_{i=1}^k A_i$ triangulable, that is, ...

### Can any smooth triangulation of a smooth manifold be blurred?

For the purposes of this question, let's say that a blurring
of a smooth triangulation $T$ of a smooth manifold $X$
is a smooth homotopy $h\colon [0,1] \times X \to X$ such that $h_0=\operatorname{id}...

### Most regular way to triangulate $\mathbb{R}^3$?

By "regular", I'm going by a property of Delaunay Triangulation, which is to maximize the minimum angle. In $\mathbb{R}^2$, tiling with equilateral triangles gives you a minimum angle of 60 degrees. ...

### (∞,n)-category of triangulated cobordisms

What is an accepted definition of a (∞,n)-category of triangulated cobordisms?
Is there one that has a forgetful functor to (Rezk - Hopkins -) Lurie's smooth cobordisms? Does it shed light on how ...

### Mean number of $n$-simplices per $(n-2)$-simplex in a triangulated $n$-manifold

Work by Tamura (extending results by Luo and Stong) shows the following.
Theorem: For any closed 3-manifold $M$ and any rational number $4.5 < r < 6$ there is a triangulation $T$ of $M$ for ...

### regular triangulations of the product of two simplices

Is description of all regular triangluations of $\Delta^n\times \Delta^k$ known? (Regular triangulations are those which correspond to vertices of Gelfand--Kapranov--Zelevinsky secondary polytope, or, ...

### Homotoping a 2-plane field on a closed orientable 3-manifold to a contact structure

I am a beginner in Contact Geometry.
To prove that the inclusion $\text{Cont}(M)\hookrightarrow \text{Dist}(M)$ induces surjection at $\pi_0$ level, the closest I got was based on Ko Honda's notes.
...

### dissections and vertices of non-convex polytopes

Let us call a finite union $P$ of $n$-dimensional compact convex polytopes in $\mathbb{R}^n$ a non-convex polytope. Recall that a dissection of $P$ is a finite collection $T$ of $n$-dimensional ...
