Shadows of Newton Polytopes

LIPIcs-CCC-2021-9.pdf (0.7 MB)


We define the shadow complexity of a polytope P as the maximum number of vertices in a linear projection of P to the plane. We describe connections to algebraic complexity and to parametrized optimization. We also provide several basic examples and constructions, and develop tools for bounding shadow complexity.
