### “Slim” directed polytopes: any established name for them?

This is a "looking for context" question. Let's say that a polytope is directed if its 1-skeleton is an oriented graph with no cycles, one source, one sink. (Edit: let us additionally assume ...

### Number of vertices in a polyhedron

Consider polytopes $$A_1[x_{1,1},\dots,x_{1,m_1},z_{1}]'\leq b_1$$ $$A_2[x_{2,1},\dots,x_{2,m_2},z_{2}]'\leq b_2$$ $$B[z_{1},z_{2},z]'\leq c$$ having vertex count $v_1,v_2$ and $v$ respectively. We ...

### Exactly counting number of vertices of a polyhedron

Suppose $Ax\leq b$ is a polyhedron, where the number of rows in $A$ is $r$, the vector $x$ lies in $\mathbb R^n$ and the rank of $A$ is $t$. Assume minimal number of hyperplane inequalities to define ...

### Embedding an icosahedron

A transitive set in $\mathbf{R}^n$ is a finite set with a transitive group of symmetries. I want to understand how subsets of a transitive set constrain the group. Let me start with the example of a ...

### Distinguishable knots (with constraints) over polyhedra

I'm trying to find the number of distinguishable knot projections over certain convex regular polyhedra according to the following constraints. On each face on the polyhedron the knot will have a ...

### Finding Motzkin's original paper on copositive quadratic forms

I am currently in the process of writing my thesis about copositive matrices and would like to write a chronological narrative about the ascent of these matrices to the prominent place they have today ...

### Classification of pseudoregular polyhedra

In contrast to a regular polyhedron, which has one orbit of flags, I’ve been studying what I call pseudoregular polyhedra, which have two orbits of flags interchanged by conjugation (explained here). ...

### Complexity of scissors congruence?

Where is the complexity of the problem 'Given two bounded compact convex integral polyhedra in $\mathbb R^n$ presented by $O(poly(n))$ integer valued halfspaces given by linear inequalities with ...

### Products of polytopes and the normals of their facets

I need to compute the normals of the facets of certain polytopes that can be represented as products of polytopes in smaller dimensions. Searching the bibliography I found that the facets of the ...

### Alexandrov's generalization of Cauchy's rigidity theorem

Wikipedia states that A. D. Alexandrov generalized Cauchy's rigidity theorem for polyhedra to higher dimensions. The relevant statement in the article is not linked to any source. The sources at the ...

### Motivic strong bellows conjecture

There is a theorem due to Gaifullin--Ignashchenko stating that the Dehn invariant of any flexible polyhedron in the $n$-dimensional Euclidean space ($n\geq 3$) is constant during the flexion. Is ...

### When do projection maps of polyhedra factor?

Given three polyhedra $P$, $Q$, and $R$ in dimensions $a$, $b$, and $c$ respectively, with $a\leq b\leq c$, with the additional condition that: $P=\pi_1(Q)=\pi_2(R)$, where $\pi_1$ and $\pi_2$ are ...

### Mixed integer formulation of union of polytopes?

Given $t$ different unbounded polyhedra $P_1:A^{(1)}x^{(1)}\leq b^{(1)},\dots,P_t:A^{(t)}x^{(t)}\leq b^{(t)}$ we are looking for the representation of $\bigcup_{i=1}^tP_i$ (not their convex hull) with ...
Since Borsuk conjecture hold for centrally symmetric convex sets in $\mathbb{R}^n$ so we can cut a hypercube into at least $n+1$ disjoint parts. Is there a method how can one do that?
