We study finite groups that occur as combinatorial automorphism groups or geometric symmetry groups of convex polytopes. When $\Gamma$ is a subgroup of the combinatorial automorphism group of a convex $d$-polytope, $d\geq 3$, then there exists a convex $d$-polytope related to the original polytope with combinatorial automorphism group exactly $\Gamma$. When $\Gamma$ is a subgroup of the geometric symmetry group of a convex $d$-polytope, $d\geq 3$, then there exists a convex $d$-polytope related…

Non-commutative groups as prescribed polytopal symmetries
We study properties of the realizations of groups as the combinatorial automorphism group of a convex polytope. We show that for any non-abelian group $G$ with a central involution there is a

Classification of affine symmetry groups of orbit polytopes
Let G be a finite group acting linearly on a vector space V. We consider the linear symmetry groups $${\text {GL}}(Gv)$$GL(Gv) of orbits $$Gv\subseteq V$$Gv⊆V, where the linear symmetry group$${\text
A property of the Birkhoff polytope
The Birkhoff polytope $B_n$ is the convex hull of all $n\times n$ permutation matrices in $\mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$. We compute the combinatorial symmetry group of the Birkhoff polytope. A
Realizations of abstract regular polytopes from a representation theoretic view
Peter McMullen has developed a theory of realizations of abstract regular polytopes, and has shown that the realizations up to congruence form a pointed convex cone which is the direct product of
Any Finite Group is the Group of Some Binary, Convex Polytope
TLDR
The convex polytope the authors build for the given finite group is binary, and even combinatorial in the sense of Naddef and Pulleyblank, and a shorter proof for a stronger result is provided.
Realisation of groups as automorphism groups in categories
It is shown that in various categories, including many consisting of maps or hypermaps, oriented or unoriented, of a given hyperbolic type, every countable group $A$ is isomorphic to the automorphism
Abstract Regular Polytopes
Abstract regular polytopes stand at the end of more than two millennia of geometrical research, which began with regular polygons and polyhedra. They are highly symmetric combinatorial structures
A Convex Polytope and an Antimatroid for any Given, Finite Group
Polytopes with Preassigned Automorphism Groups
We prove that every finite group is the automorphism group of a finite abstract polytope isomorphic to a face-to-face tessellation of a sphere by topological copies of convex polytopes. We also show
