Lattice points in lattice polytopes

  • Oleg Pikhurko (a1)

It is shown that, for any lattice polytope P⊂ℝd the set int (P)∩lℤd (provided that it is non-empty) contains a point whose coefficient of asymmetry with respect to P is at most 8d · (8l+7)22d+1. If, moreover, P is a simplex, then this bound can be improved to 8 · (8l+7 )2d+1. As an application, new upper bounds on the volume of a lattice polytope are deduced, given its dimension and the number of sublattice points in its interior.
