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

AlmtractWe present acomprehensive survey of the theory of hypercube graphs. Basic properties related to distance, coloring, domination and genus are reviewed. The properties of the ncube defined by its subgraphs are considered next, including thickness, coarseness, Hamiltonian cycles and induced paths and cycles. Finally, various embedding and packing problems are discussed, including the determination of the cubical dimension of a given cubical graph. I.

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.

The Fibonacci cube Γn is the subgraph of the ncube induced by the binary strings that contain no two consecutive 1s. These graphs are applicable as interconnection networks and in theoretical chemistry, and lead to the Fibonacci dimension of a graph. In this paper, a survey on Fibonacci cubes is given with an emphasis on their structure, including representations, recursive construction, hamiltonicity, degree sequence and other enumeration results. Their median nature that leads to a fast recognition algorithm is discussed. The Fibonacci dimension of a graph, studies of graph invariants on Fibonacci cubes, and related classes of graphs are also presented. Along the way some new short proofs are given.

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

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.
