INTRODUCTION An npoint metric space (X; D) can be represented by an n n table specifying the distances. Such tables arise in many diverse areas. For example, consider the following scenario in microbiology: X is a collection of bacterial strains, and for every two strains, one is given their dissimilarity (computed, say, by comparing their DNA). It is dicult to see any structure in a large table of numbers, and so we would like to represent a given metric space in a more comprehensible way. For example, it would be very nice if we could assign to each x 2 X a point f(x) in the plane in such a way that D(x; y) equals the Euclidean distance of f(x) and f(y). Such a representation would allow us to see the structure of the metric space: tight clusters, isolated points, and so on. Another advantage would be that the metric would now be represented by only 2n real numbers, the coordinates of the n points in the plane, instead of numbers as before. Moreover, many quantities concern

We group in this paper, within a unified framework, many applications of the following polyhedra: cut, boolean quadric, hypermetric and metric polyhedra. We treat, in particular, the following applications: ffl ` 1  and L 1 metrics in functional analysis, ffl the maxcut problem, the Boole problem and multicommodity flow problems in combinatorial optimization, ffl lattice holes in geometry of numbers, ffl density matrices of manyfermions systems in quantum mechanics. We present some other applications, in probability theory, statistical data analysis and design theory.

1. Definitions and preliminary results. We denote by d = (d12} •. • , din} d2z,..., dni>n) a vector of I 9 I distances between n points. Such a vector d is called a metric if it satisfies the triangle inequalities (1) d{j + djk ^ dik IS i,j, k S n. The set of all metrics on n points forms a convex polyhedral cone, the extremal properties of which are discussed in [4]. We will be concerned with a subcone that is spanned by metrics of the form (2) dtJ(t) = { * \t JeV

Hypermetricity turns out to be the appropriate notion for describing the metric structure of holes in lattices. We survey hypermetrics, their connections with lattices and applications. 2 M.

We show that the triangulations of a finite point set form a flip graph that can be embedded isometrically into a hypercube, if and only if the point set has no empty convex pentagon. Point sets with no empty pentagon include intersections of lattices with convex sets, points on two lines, and several other infinite families. As a consequence, flip distance in such point sets can be computed efficiently.

Cartesian products of complete graphs are known as Hamming graphs. Using embeddings into Cartesian products of quotient graphs we characterize subgraphs, induced subgraphs, and isometric subgraphs of Hamming graphs. For instance, a graph G is an induced subgraph of a Hamming graph if and only if there exists a labeling of E(G) fulfilling the following two conditions: (i) incident edges receive the same label if and only if they lie on a common triangle; (ii) for any vertices u and v at distance at least two, there exist two labels which both appear on any induced u, vpath.
