Realisations for the associahedron and the cyclohedron

J.-L. Loday presented in 2002 an algorithm that yields integer coordinates for the asociahedron (or Stasheff polytope) from planar binary trees. He asked for a similar procedure to realise the cyclohedron (or Bott-Taubes-polytope or generalised associahedron of type B). A generalised version of his algorithm will be presented: For every orientation of a Coxeter graph of type A or B we obtain a realisation of the associahedron or cyclohedron with integer coordinates.

Joint work with Christophe Hohlweg.
