Feb 2018: We have released version 3.2 of polymake. You can also obtain it at github. Binaries for Mac are here.
I will teach Programmieren in C at TU Darmstadt in winter term 2018.
There is a new web form for the polymake database that gives access to the two currently available collections.
A first draft of the lecture notes on Lattice Polytopes (joint with Christian Haase and Benjamin Nill) is available
Research areas
  • geometric combinatorics
  • toric geometry
  • triangulations/decompositions of lattice polytopes
  • discrete optimization
  • algorithms and mathematical software
  • Decompositions of lattice polyhedra
    I am an associated researcher in the Priority Program "Algorithmic and Experimental Methods" funded by the German Research Council (DFG SPP 1489).
  • Mathematical software I am a developer for the software system polymake for computations in combinatorial geometry and related fields.
