Integral Points in Polytopes
In this chapter we begin to study the problem of counting the number of integer points in a convex polytope, or the equivalent problem of computing a partition function. We start with the simplest case of numbers. We continue with the theorems of Brion and Ehrhart and leave the general discussion to the next chapters.
