Lectures on Discrete and Polyhedral Geometry

Publisher: UCLA
Number of pages: 428

The subject of Discrete Geometry and Convex Polytopes has received much attention in recent decades, with the explosion of the work in the field. This book is aimed to be an introduction to some of our favorite parts of the subject, covering some familiar and popular topics as well as some old, forgotten, sometimes obscure, and at times very recent and exciting results.
