f-vectors of Minkowski sums of polytopes
Christophe Weibel
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.
