    Polytopes are solid bodies bounded by flat facets. Alternatively, they can be described as the convex hull of their vertices. Thus a polytope can be presented by information on two aspects, a geometric one: "What are the coordinates of the vertices" and a combinatorial one: "Which vertex is incident to which face". There are many interrelations between these two levels: Combinatorial requirements enforce restrictions on the geometry, and vice versa. A03 studies aspects of this interplay.
