  • Illumination complexes are examples of 'flat polyhedral complexes' which arise if several copies of a convex polyhedron (convex body) Q are glued together along some of their common faces (closed convex subsets of their boundaries). A particularly nice example arises if Q is a {\Delta}-zonotope (generalized rhombic dodecahedron), known also as the dual of the difference body {\Delta} - {\Delta} of a simplex {\Delta}, or the dual of the convex hull of the root system A_n. We demonstrate that the… CONTINUE READING
