The special session on “Polytopes-Algebra-Computation”, in the context of Applications of Computer Algebra - ACA 2021, will focus on the interaction of polyhedral geometry with algebra and algebraic geometry from a computational viewpoint.

Topics of interest

Everything in the intersection of polyhedral geometry, algebraic geometry and algorithms, including but not limited to:

  • Polytopes in algebra and algebraic geometry
  • Newton polytopes
  • Computational Ehrhart theory
  • Algebraic aspects of polytopes
  • Algebraic applications of computational geometry
  • Applications of Polytopes (e.g., statistics, combinatorics etc.)
  • Software - Normaliz, polymake, 4ti2, barvinok, gfan, LattE, etc.


  • Winfried Bruns - Normaliz meets Lawrence: polytope volume by signed decomposition
  • Carles Checa - Tropical refinement
  • Antonio Macchia - Slack realization spaces and realizability of polytopes
  • Cihan Okay - A hidden variable model for universal quantum computation with magic states on qubits
