By Günter M. Ziegler

Based on a graduate path on the Technische Universität, Berlin, those lectures current a wealth of fabric at the glossy conception of convex polytopes. the easy exposition good points many illustrations, and whole proofs for many theorems. With in simple terms linear algebra as a prerequisite, it takes the reader quick from the fundamentals to subject matters of modern learn. The lectures introduce easy proof approximately polytopes, with an emphasis on equipment that yield the consequences, talk about very important examples and stylish buildings, and convey the buzz of present paintings within the box. they'll supply fascinating and stress-free interpreting for researchers in addition to students.
