It linked me to Guy Lebanon's thesis, which I scanned quickly, and saw the definition for n-simplex right below the definition for the n-sphere and upper half plane. It reminded me that I still don't get the idea of a simplex or simplicial complexes and can't relate them to my experience.<BR/><BR/>So I googled. And voila, the simplex wiki is the clearest, most concise thing I've read about it. [To be fair, I've never read a geometry textbook] And now, it's starting to make sense. So, you get the thanks^(1/3) [for being three steps upstream from the simplex wiki].Davidnoreply@blogger.com
