fvectors of Minkowski sums of polytopes
Christophe Weibel
McGill

Minkowski sum is a basic operation with applications
in all kind of fields. The combinatorial properties
of sums of polytopes are however not well known.
We present in this talk some recent results and bounds
on the number of faces sums of polytopes can have in
function of their summands.
