Keywords: Geometric n-dimensional polyhedron, d-convexity, point of local non-d-convexity, polyhedral complex, oriented polytope, dividing.


In a normed space Rn over the field of real numbers ℜ, which is an α-space [26, 29], one derives the formula expressing the minimum number of d-convex pieces into which a geometric n-dimensional polyhedron can be partitioned. The mentioned problem has been kept unsolvable for more than 30 years. The special cases for R2 , R3 lead to nontrivial applications [19, 20, 23, 28, 30].
