A Class of Polytopes with a Remarkable Volume Formula


We introduce a class of polytopes which we call endoskeletal. The structure of an endoskeletal polytope is determined by its internal skeleton and its volume is given by a strikingly simple formula involving a single determinant. A rudimentary knowledge of undergraduate mathematics is necessary and sufficient for understanding this talk.
