 The AMSIMSSIAM Summer Research Conference on Integer Points in Polyhedra took place in Snowbird (UT). This proceedings volume contains original research and survey articles stemming from that event. Topics covered include commutative algebra, optimization, discrete geometry, statistics, representation theory, and symplectic geometry. The book is suitable for researchers and graduate students interested in combinatorial aspects of the above fields.
