A seminal result in the theory of toric varieties, due to Knudsen, Mumford and Waterman (1973), asserts that for every lattice polytope $P$ there is a positive integer $k$ such that the dilated polytope $kP$ has a unimodular triangulation. In dimension 3, Kantor and Sarkaria (2003) have shown that $k=4$ works for every polytope. But this does not imply that every $k>4$ works as well. We here study the values of $k$ for which the result holds showing that: 1. It contains all composite numbers… Expand

This work gives explicit coordinates for representatives of each class, together with other invariants such as their oriented matroid (or order type) and volume vector, and classify lattice $3$-polytopes of width larger than one and with exactly $6$ lattice points. Expand

A lattice $d$-simplex is the convex hull of $d+1$ affinely independent integer points in ${\mathbb R}^d$. It is called empty if it contains no lattice point apart of its $d+1$ vertices. TheExpand
Unimodular covers of 3-dimensional parallelepipeds and Cayley sums

We show that the following classes of lattice polytopes have unimodular covers, in dimension three: the class of parallelepipeds, the class of centrally symmetric polytopes, and the class of CayleyExpand

Unimodular triangulations of lattice polytopes arise in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, integer programming and, of course, combinatorics. In this article, we review several classes ofExpand
The complete classification of empty lattice $4$-simplices
An empty simplex is a lattice simplex with only its vertices as lattice points. Their classification in dimension three was completed by G. White in 1964. In dimension four, the same task was startedExpand

Ehrhart polynomials are extensively-studied structures that interpolate the discrete volume of the dilations of integral $n$-polytopes. The coefficients of Ehrhart polynomials, however, are still notExpand
Sums of sets of lattice points and unimodular coverings of polytopes
If P is a lattice polytope (that is, the convex hull of a finite set of lattice points in $${\mathbf{R}^n}$$Rn), then every sum of h lattice points in P is a lattice point in the h-fold sumset hP.Expand

Our treatment is very combinatorial. In particular, instead of regarding a subdivision as a set of polytopes we regard it as a set of subsets of V , whose convex hulls subdivide P . This may appearExpand
