MULTIPLE COMBINATORIAL STOKES’ THEOREM WITH BALANCED STRUCTURE
Combinatorics of complexes plays an important role in topology, nonlinear analysis, game theory, and mathematical economics. In 1967, Ky Fan used door-to-door principle to prove a combinatorial Stokes’ theorem on pseudomanifolds. In 1993, Shih and Lee developed the geometric context of general position maps, $\pi$-balanced and $\pi$-subbalanced sets and used them to prove a combinatorial formula for multiple set-valued labellings on simplexes. On the other hand, in 1998, Lee and Shih proved a multiple combinatorial Stokes’ theorem, generalizing the Ky Fan combinatorial formula to multiple labellings. That raises a question : Does there exist a unified theorem underlying Ky Fan’s theorem and Shih and Lee’s results? In this paper, we prove a multiple combinatorial Stokes’ theorem with balanced structure. Our method of proof is based on an incidence function. As a consequence, we obtain a multiple combinatorial Sperner’s lemma with balanced structure.
