Algebraic methods for solution of polyhedra

I. Kh. Sabitov

M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University

Abstract: 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 content of this paper is a survey of results on calculating the volumes of polyhedra in terms of their metrics and combinatorial structures. It turns out that a far-reaching generalization of Heron's formula for the area of a triangle to the volumes of polyhedra is possible, and it underlies the proof of the conjecture that the volume of a deformed flexible polyhedron remains constant.
Bibliography: 110 titles.

Keywords: polyhedra, combinatorial structure, metric, volume, bending, bellows conjecture, volume polynomials, generalization of Heron's formula.
