Face numbers of spheres, manifolds, and pseudomanifolds

Isabella Novik
University of Washington

We report on several recent advances on face numbers of triangulated manifolds with and without boundary (and, if time permits, pseudomanifolds), among them the lower bound theorems that strengthen Kalai's 1987 rigidity inequality. These results are joint with Ed Swartz.
