  • Abstract Shellability of simplicial complexes has been a powerful concept in polyhydral theory, in p.l. topology and recently in connection with Cohen-Macaulay rings. It is known that all 2-spheres and all boundary complexes of convex polytopes are shellable. The analogous theorem fails for general simplicial balls and spheres. In this paper we study transformations of simplicial p.l. manifolds by elementary boundary operations (shellings and inverse shellings) and bistellar operations (the… CONTINUE READING
