Abstract

Figure 1 depicts three triangulated spaces. Their main property is that they are glued from simplices: points, segments, triangles, tetrahedra and their higher dimensional generalizations. Such spaces can be described combinatorially: one has to specify how many simplices of any dimension should be taken and how they should be glued together. Let us give precise definitions.
