Lattice polytopes, with a view towards Geometry and Applications

ICMS, University of Edinburgh

18th – 20th September 2019

Lattice polytopes arise in many aspects of mathematics. This three-day workshop will focus on the combinatorics of lattice polytopes, with a view towards connections with algebraic geometry via toric and tropical geometry, and to applications.
