Abstract

Given any 3-dimensional convex polytopeP, and any simple circuitC in the 1-skeleton ofP, there is a convex polytopeP′ combinatorially equivalent toP, and a direction such that ifP′ is projected orthogonally in this direction, then the inverse image of the boundary of the projection is the circuit inP′ corresponding to the circuitC inP.
