|Title:||Polytopal Bier Spheres and Kantorovich–Rubinstein Polytopes of Weighted Cycles||Journal:||Discrete and Computational Geometry||Issue Date:||1-Jan-2019||Rank:||M22||ISSN:||0179-5376||DOI:||10.1007/s00454-019-00151-5||Abstract:||
The problem of deciding if a given triangulation of a sphere can be realized as the boundary sphere of a simplicial, convex polytope is known as the ‘Simplicial Steinitz problem’. It is known by an indirect and non-constructive argument that a vast majority of Bier spheres are non-polytopal. Contrary to that, we demonstrate that the Bier spheres associated to threshold simplicial complexes are all polytopal. Moreover, we show that all Bier spheres are starshaped. We also establish a connection between Bier spheres and Kantorovich–Rubinstein polytopes by showing that the boundary sphere of the KR-polytope associated to a polygonal linkage (weighted cycle) is isomorphic to the Bier sphere of the associated simplicial complex of “short sets”.
