## Polynomial time algorithms to approximate mixed volumes within a simply exponential factor

We study in this paper randomized algorithms to approximate the mixed volume of well-presented convex compact sets. Our main result is a randomized poly-time algorithm which approximates $V(K_1,…,K_n)$ with multiplicative error $e^n$ and with better rates if the affine dimensions of most of the sets $K_i$ are small.\\ Even such rate is impossible to achieve … Read more
