We prove that the Dehn invariants of any Bricard octahedron remain constant during the flex and that the Strong Bellows Conjecture holds true for the Steffen flexible polyhedron. 
Combinatorics of Bricard’s octahedra
We re-prove the classification of flexible octahedra, obtained by Bricard at the beginning of the XX century, by means of combinatorial objects satisfying some elementary rules. The explanations of
The set of nondegenerate flexible polyhedra of a prescribed combinatorial structure is not always algebraic
We construct some example of a closed nondegenerate nonflexible polyhedron P in Euclidean 3-space that is the limit of a sequence of nondegenerate flexible polyhedra each of which is combinatorially
A sufficient condition for a polyhedron to be rigid
We study oriented connected closed polyhedral surfaces with non-degenerate triangular faces in three-dimensional Euclidean space, calling them polyhedra for short. A polyhedron is called flexible if
Flexible Octahedra in the Projective Extension of the Euclidean 3-Space
In this paper we complete the classification of flexible octahedra in the projective extension of the Euclidean 3-space. If all vertices are Euclidean points then we get the well known Bricard
Dehn invariant of flexible polyhedra
We prove that the Dehn invariant of any flexible polyhedron in Euclidean space of dimension greater than or equal to 3 is constant during the flexion. In dimensions 3 and 4 this implies that any
A necessary flexibility condition for a nondegenerate suspension in Lobachevsky 3-space
We show that some combination of the lengths of all edges of the equator of a flexible suspension in Lobachevsky 3-space is equal to zero (each length is taken with a ‘plus’ or ‘minus’ sign in this
A necessary flexibility condition for a nondegenerate suspension in Lobachevsky 3-space
We show that some combination of the lengths of all edges of the equator of a flexible suspension in Lobachevsky 3-space is equal to zero (each length is taken with a 'plus' or 'minus' sign in this
Algebraic methods for solution of polyhedra
By analogy with the solution of triangles, the solution of polyhedra means a theory and methods for calculating some geometric parameters of polyhedra in terms of other parameters of them. The main
Dehn Invariant and Scissors Congruence of Flexible Polyhedra
We prove that the Dehn invariant of any flexible polyhedron in n-dimensional Euclidean space, where n ≥ 3, is constant during the flexion. For n = 3 and 4 this implies that any flexible polyhedron
Flexible suspensions with a hexagonal equator
We construct a flexible (non-embedded) suspension with a hexagonal equator in Euclidean 3-space. It is known that the volume bounded by such a suspension is well defined and constant during the flex.

Nonflexible polyhedra with a small number of vertices
The paper shows which embedded and immersed polyhedra with no more than eight vertices are nonflexible. It turns out that all embedded polyhedra are nonflexible, except possibly for polyhedra of one
