8 issues in regards to the unit cubes are brought inside of this textbook: move sections, projections, inscribed simplices, triangulations, 0/1 polytopes, Minkowski's conjecture, Furtwangler's conjecture, and Keller's conjecture. particularly Chuanming Zong demonstrates how deep research like log concave degree and the Brascamp-Lieb inequality can take care of the go part challenge, how Hyperbolic Geometry is helping with the triangulation challenge, how staff jewelry can take care of Minkowski's conjecture and Furtwangler's conjecture, and the way Graph thought handles Keller's conjecture

Example text

Based on the above observations, we can ask the following question. 2. Determine the maximal minimal number of the j-dimensional faces of a k-dimensional projection of I n . So far no exact result to this problem is known. However, we do know its answer from the probability point of view. Let G n k denote the Grassmannian of k-dimensional linear subspaces of E with the usual topology. It is well known that there is a unique rotation invariant probability measure k on G n k . Let P be an n-dimensional polytope and let H k ∈ G n k , then it is clear that P H k is a k-dimensional polytope.

For convenience, we assume that a1 , a2 pendent; that is vk S > 0 ak−1 , and ak , Let H denote the k-dimensional subspace spanned by a1 , a2 and let H denote the n − k -dimensional subspace which is perpendicular with H. 2 Binary matrices Let ak+1 , ak+2 an be a basis of H such that 1 if i = j 0 otherwise ai aj = 35 holds for k + 1 ≤ i ≤ j ≤ n. Then we define S∗ = S + n 0≤ i ai i ≤1 i=k+1 It is easy to see that vn S ∗ = v k S Let A denote the n × n matrix with entries aij , let Ak denote its k × n submatrix consisting of the first k rows, and let T denote the linear transformation determined by T ai = ei where e1 e2 i=1 2 n en is an orthonormal basis of E n .

Then we have 2 n L = 2 2 uj n ≤ 4n j=1 uj 2 = 8n j=1 and by the isoperimetric inequality for 2n-gons in E 2 (see Fejes Tóth, 1964), v2 P2 ≤ cot 2n 42 Projections where equality is attained if and only if P2 is a regular 2n-gon with edge √ length 2/n. On the other hand, we can construct such a projection. Let un be complex numbers defined by u1 u2 where i = we have √ uj = uj1 + iuj2 = 2/n · e j−1 i/n −1. For convenience, we may view them as points in E 2 . Then u2j1 + u2j2 = u2j1 − u2j2 + 2i uj 2 = 2 uj1 uj2 = u2j = 0 and therefore u2j1 = u2j2 = 1 uj1 uj2 = 0 It is known in linear algebra that then we can construct an n × n unimodular ujn , it can be verified that matrix U = ujl Writing uj = uj1 uj2 C = uj is an n-dimensional unit cube and the projection of C on to E 2 is ±un .
