Abstract: Let $M$ be a multiplicity free Hamiltonian manifold $M$ for a connected compact Lie group $K$ (not necessarily abelian). Let $\mathcal {P}$ be the momentum polytope of $M$. We calculate the automorphism of $M$ as a sheaf over $\mathcal {P}$ and show that all higher cohomology groups of this sheaf vanish. From this, and a recent theorem of Losev, we deduce a conjecture of Delzant: the momentum polytope and the principal isotropy group determine $M$ up to isomorphism. Moreover, we give a criterion for when a polytope and a group are afforded by a multiplicity free manifold.
