Download e-book for kindle: Abstract Regular Polytopes (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and by Peter McMullen,Egon Schulte

By Peter McMullen,Egon Schulte

summary common polytopes stand on the finish of greater than millennia of geometrical examine, which all started with standard polygons and polyhedra. they're hugely symmetric combinatorial buildings with targeted geometric, algebraic or topological homes; in lots of methods extra interesting than conventional typical polytopes and tessellations. The quick improvement of the topic long ago two decades has ended in a wealthy new concept, that includes an enticing interaction of mathematical components, together with geometry, combinatorics, crew thought and topology. summary ordinary polytopes and their teams offer an beautiful new method of figuring out geometric and combinatorial symmetry. this can be the 1st complete up to date account of the topic and its ramifications, and meets a severe desire for this kind of textual content, simply because no ebook has been released during this sector of classical and sleek discrete geometry due to the fact Coxeter's commonplace Polytopes (1948) and normal advanced Polytopes (1974). The booklet could be of curiosity to researchers and graduate scholars in discrete geometry, combinatorics and staff theory.
