Low-dimensional faces of random 0/1-polytopes

Let P be a random 0/1-polytope in Rd with n(d) vertices, and denote by φk(P) the k-face density of P, i.e., the quotient of the number of k-dimensional faces of P and \binom{n(d)}{k+1}. For each k >= 2, we establish the existence of a sharp threshold for the k-face density and determine the values of the threshold numbers τk such that, for all ε > 0,
E(φk(P)) =

holds for the expected value of φk(P). The threshold for k=1 has recently been determined by K. and Remshagen (2003).

In particular, these results indicate that the high face densities often encountered in polyhedral combinatorics (e.g., for the cut-polytopes of complete graphs) should be considered more as a phenomenon of the general geometry of 0/1-polytopes than as a feature of the special combinatorics of the underlying problems.
