"  Barycentric Coordinates for Convex Polytopes "
  Corey Irving  


I will discuss a paper by Joe Warren about barycentric coordinates of convex polytopes. Barycentric coordinate functions express points of a polytope as convex combinations of the vertices. We will discuss how to obtain these functions and how they are used in computer science.
