Polyhedra and commensurability
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
This snapshot introduces the notion of commensurability of polyhedra. At its bottom, this concept can be developed from constructions with paper, scissors, and glue. Starting with an elementary example, we formalize it subsequently. Finally, we discuss intrigu- ing connections with other fields of mathematics.
