Related Work. The results and ideas of Section 2 are, for the most part, not new. The idea of an abstract polyhedron represented by an incidence structure, and its realizations in R3 , appears in Section 2 of [14]. In Corollary 15 of that paper, Whiteley proves that the space of realizations of a ‘spherical’ incidence structure (equivalent to an incidence structure arising from a convex polyhedron) has dimension E. 8 is often referred to as ‘Steinitz’s lemma,’ and a variety of proofs appear in the literature ([10], [8]); we believe that the proof above is new.

Diagonal angles’ between Ai A j and Ak Al . Other quantities might also be considered, like the distance from Ai to A j Ak , but in practice these would require several measurements. It is natural to ask how many simple measurements are needed to determine a polygon up to isometry. In the case of a triangle the answer is 3. As mentioned earlier, there are a few ways to do it. 4). It is easy to see that for any n-gon P = A1 · · · An the following (2n − 3) measurements suffice: the n − 1 distances |A1 A2 |, |A2 A3 |, .
