The title of Martin's talk: Constructing k-orbit polytopes from their automorphism groups

An abstract polytope is a combinatorial generalization of the face lattice of a convex polytope. The most studied abstract polytopes are the regular ones: those in which the automorphism group acts transitively on the set of flags. The automorphism groups of regular polytopes are characterized by having a set of generators satisfying what's called "the intersection property". This result has been generalized for some families of polytopes with lots of symmetries, for example chiral polytopes. However, until recently, not much was known about a general result about the automorphism groups of polytopes with an arbitrary number of flag-orbits.

In this talk we will use voltage graphs to be able to find the intersection properties that a group must satisfy to act by automorphisms on a polytope with an arbitrary number of flag-orbits given a desired symmetry type graph. We will also show how we can use this to build any polytope (with a given symmetry type), as a coset geometry from its automorphism group and a list of distinguished generators.
