"Based on a graduate course given at the Technische Universität Berlin, these lectures present a wealth of material on the modern theory of convex polytopes."--Page 4 of cover
Raisonnements divins quelques démonstrations mathématiques particulièrement élégantes by Martin Aigner ( )

Convex polytopes by Branko Grünbaum ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The original edition [...] inspired a whole generation of grateful workers in polytope theory. Without it, it is doubtful whether many of the subsequent advances in the subject would have been made. The many seeds it sowed have since grown into healthy trees, with vigorous branches and luxuriant foliage. It is good to see it in print once again." --Peter McMullen, University College London

Polytopes : combinatorics and computation by Gil Kalai ( Book )
11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Questions that arose from linear programming and combinatorial optimization have been a driving force for modern polytope theory, such as the diameter questions motivated by the desire to understand the complexity of the simplex algorithm, or the need to study facets for use in cutting plane procedures. In addition, algorithms now provide the means to computationally study polytopes, to compute their parameters such as flag vectors, graphs and volumes, and to construct examples of large complexity. The papers of this volume thus display a wide panorama of connections of polytope theory with other fields. Areas such as discrete and computational geometry, linear and combinatorial optimization, and scientific computing have contributed a combination of questions, ideas, results, algorithms and, finally, computer programs

Pi und Co Kaleidoskop der Mathematik ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in German and Spanish and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematik ist eine AuAerst vielseitige, lebendige Wissenschaft. Von ihren groAen Themen wie Zahlen, Unendlichkeiten, Dimensionen und Wahrscheinlichkeiten spannen die Autoren einen Bogen bis hin zu aktuellen Anwendungen in der Logistik, der Finanzwelt, der Kryptographie, der Medizin und anderen Gebieten. Breit gefAchert wie die Mathematik ist auch das Spektrum der BeitrAge. Leicht verstAndliche, unterhaltsame Texte finden sich ebenso wie anspruchsvollere mathematische Herausforderungen. Das Buch ist also eine Einladung an jeden, seinen eigenen Zugang zu dieser spannenden und abenteurreichen Wissenschaft zu finden
Using the Borsuk-Ulam theorem : lectures on topological methods in combinatorics and geometry by Jiří Matoušek ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A number of important results in combinatorics, discrete geometry, and theoretical computer science have been proved using algebraic topology. While the results are quite famous, their proofs are not so widely understood. They are scattered in research papers or outlined in surveys, and they often use topological notions not commonly known among combinatorialists or computer scientists. This book is the first textbook treatment of a significant part of such results. It focuses on so-called equivariant methods, based on the Borsuk-Ulam theorem and its generalizations. The topological tools are

Randomized simplex algorithms on Klee Minty cubes by Bernd Gärtner ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We investigate the behavior of randomized simplex algorithms on special linear programs. For this, we develop combinatorial models for the Klee-Minty cubes [16] and similar linear programs with exponential decreasing paths. The analysis of two randomized pivot rules on the Klee-Minty cubes leads to (nearly) quadratic lower bounds for the complexity of linear programming with random pivots. Thus we disprove two bounds conjectured in the literature. At the same time, we establish quadratic upper bounds for random pivots on the linear programs under investigation. This motivates the question whether some randomized pivot rules possibly have quadratic worst-case behavior on general linear programs."

Shellability of chessboard complexes by Günter M Ziegler ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The notion of vertex decomposability is a very convenient tool to prove shellability of such combinatorially defined simplicial complexes. We establish a relation between vertex decomposability and the CL- shellability technique (for posets) of Björner & Wachs."
Extension spaces of oriented matriods by Bernd Sturmfels ( Book )
5 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We study the space of all extensions of a real hyperplance arrangement by a new pseudo-hyperplane, and, more generally, of an oriented matroid by a new element. The question whether this space has the homotopy type of a sphere is a special case of the 'Generalized Baues Problem' of Billera, Kapranov & Sturmfels, via the Bohne-Dress Theorem on zonotopal tilings. We prove that the extension space is spherical for the class of strongly euclidean oriented matroids. This class includes the alternating matroids and all oriented matroids of rank at most 3 or of corank at most 2. In general it is not even known whether the extension space is connected. We show that the subspace of realizable extensions is always connected but not necessarily spherical."
