|Title:||Geometry of Polyhedra|
|Speaker:||Igor Rivin, Temple University|
|I will describe a set of related questions about polyhedra in three-dimensional Euclidean and non-Euclidean space. Example questions are: what does the metric of a surface of a polyhedron look like? What can you say about the angles of the faces? Dihedral angles? How much information do you need to give to determine a polyhedron? The questions go back to (at least) Euclid, and the answers keep coming even at present.|
