The command `Delta=sum(Deltas)` defines `Delta` as the Minkowski sum of the polyhedra in `Deltas`. There is a theorem that says every face `F` of `Delta` can be decomposed as
`F=F1+F2+...+Fn
where each `Fi` is a face of `Deltai`. Can sage compute this decomposition?Thu, 22 Sep 2016 18:39:51 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/34895/can-sage-compute-the-face-decomposition-of-a-minkowski-sum/
