Abstract:

A shelling of a simplicial n-manifold is a permutation S sub 1,...,S sub m of its n-simplices. Shellings have been studied in connection with the topology of manifolds and the combinatorial geometry of convex polytopes. This paper presents algorithms for finding shellings of a given pseudomanifold M or concluding they do not exist. Modified author abstract
