Problems and methods, examples and counterexamples

Abstract

My plan is to talk about

  • the value of examples
  • the value and the limits of enumeration
  • our limited tool-box of construction methods
  • the challenges of explicit constructions
  • the value of counter-examples
  • the value and challenges of numerical computation

in polytope theory and to illustrate this with some of my favourite (open and solved) polytope problems from the last 35 years.
