Slices, slabs, and sections of the unit hypercube

By Jean-luc Marichal and Michael J. Mossinghoff


Using combinatorial methods, we derive several formulas for the volume of convex bodies obtained by intersecting a unit hypercube with a halfspace, or with a hyperplane of codimension 1, or with a flat defined by two parallel hyperplanes. We also describe some of the history of these problems, dating to Pólya’s Ph.D. thesis, and we discuss several applications of these formulas
