Abstract
For an integer $n \geq 3$, let $M_n$ be the moduli space of spatial polygons
with $n$ edges. We consider the case of odd $n$. Then $M_n$ is a Fano
manifold of complex dimension $n3$. Let $\Theta_{M_n}$ be the
sheaf of germs of holomorphic sections of the tangent bundle
$TM_n$. In this paper, we prove $H^q (M_n,\Theta_{M_n})=0$ for all
$q \geq 0$ and all odd $n$. In particular, we see that the moduli
space of deformations of the complex structure on $M_n$ consists of
a point. Thus the complex structure on $M_n$ is locally rigid.
