Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the generic volume rigidity of (d − 1)-dimensional simplicial complexes in ℝd−1, and show that the volume rigidity of a complex can be identified in terms of its exterior shifting. In addition, we establish the volume rigidity of triangulations of several 2-dimensional surfaces and prove that, in all dimensions > 1, volume rigidity is not characterized by a corresponding hypergraph sparsity property.
