Newton Polytopes and Chow Polytopes
Suppose we have a complicated (Laurent) polynomial f(x 1,..., x k ) in k variables. Let A be the set of monomials in f with non-zero coefficients. As we have seen in Chapter 5, to understand the structure of f, it is natural to consider it as a member of the space C A of all polynomials whose monomials belong to A.
