Convex-normal (pairs of) polytopes
In 2012 Gubeladze (Adv. Math. 2012) introduced the notion of $k$-convex-normal polytopes to show that integral polytopes all of whose edges are longer than $4d(d+1)$ have the integer decomposition property. In the first part of this paper we show that for lattice polytopes there is no difference between $k$- and $(k+1)$-convex-normality (for $k\geq 3 $) and improve the bound to $2d(d+1)$. In the second part we extend the definition to pairs of polytopes. Given two rational polytopes $P$ and $Q$, where the normal fan of $P$ is a refinement of the normal fan of $Q$. If every edge $e_P$ of $P$ is at least $d$ times as long as the corresponding face (edge or vertex) $e_Q$ of $Q$, then $(P+Q)\cap \mathbb{Z}^d = (P\cap \mathbb{Z}^d ) + (Q \cap \mathbb{Z}^d)$.

A Note on Toric Varieties Associated with Moduli Spaces
In this note we give a brief review of the construction of a toric variety $\mathcal{V}$ coming from a genus $g \geq 2$ Riemann surface $\Sigma^g$ equipped with a trinion, or pair of pants, decomposition. This was outlined by J. Hurtubise and L.~C. Jeffrey. A. Tyurin used this construction on a certain collection of trinion decomposed surfaces to produce a variety $DM_g$, the so-called \emph{Delzant model of moduli space}, for each genus $g.$ We conclude this note with some basic facts about the moment polytopes of the varieties $\mathcal{V}.$ In particular, we show that the varieties $DM_g$ constructed by Tyurin, and claimed to be smooth, are in fact singular for $g \geq 3.$

Gévay, Gábor
A Class of Cellulated Spheres with Non-Polytopal Symmetries
We construct, for all $d\geq 4$, a cellulation of $\mathbb S^{d-1}$. We prove that these cellulations cannot be polytopal with maximal combinatorial symmetry. Such non-realizability phenomenon was first described in dimension 4 by Bokowski, Ewald and Kleinschmidt, and, to the knowledge of the author, until now there have not been any known examples in higher dimensions. As a starting point for the construction, we introduce a new class of (Wythoffian) uniform polytopes, which we call duplexes. In proving our main result, we use some tools that we developed earlier while studying perfect polytopes. In particular, we prove perfectness of the duplexes; furthermore, we prove and make use of the perfectness of another new class of polytopes which we obtain by a variant of the so-called $E$-construction introduced by Eppstein, Kuperberg and Ziegler.

Agapito, José
Weighted Brianchon-Gram Decomposition
We give in this note a weighted version of Brianchon and Gram's decomposition for a simple polytope. We can derive from this decomposition the weighted polar formula of Agapito and a weighted version of Brion's theorem, in a manner similar to Haase, where the unweighted case is worked out. This weighted version of Brianchon and Gram' decomposition is a direct consequence of the ordinary Brianchon--Gram formula.

Vector Fields and the Cohomology Ring of Toric Varieties
Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective variety with a holomorphic vector field with isolated zero set $Z$. From the results of Carrell and Lieberman there exists a filtration $F_0 \subset F_1 \subset \cdots$ of $A(Z)$, the ring of $\c$-valued functions on $Z$, such that $\Gr A(Z) \cong H^*(X, \c)$ as graded algebras. In this note, for a smooth projective toric variety and a vector field generated by the action of a $1$-parameter subgroup of the torus, we work out this filtration. Our main result is an explicit connection between this filtration and the polytope algebra of $X$.
