Generalized permutahedra: Minkowski linear functionals and Ehrhart positivity
- Katharina Jochemko (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm)
Generalized permutahedra form a combinatorially rich class of polytopes that appear naturally in various areas of mathematics. They include many interesting and significant classes of polytopes such as matroid polytopes. We study functions on generalized permutahedra that behave linearly with respect to dilation and taking Minkowski sums. We present classification results and discuss how these can be applied to prove positivity of the linear coefficient of the Ehrhart polynomial of generalized permutahedra.
