Abstract/Media

We will first discuss when two polytopes are equivalent. There are many possible definitions, but through examples I'll motivate the most combinatorial one. Once we define a suitable equivalence, then we will consider the space of all polytopes equivalent to a given one. These spaces are wild. The talk will be flooded with graphic examples. Indeed, most of the strange phenomena can be explained in dimension 2.
