6
Cauchys Rigidity Theorem zIf two closed, convex polyhedra are combinatorially equivalent, with corresponding faces congruent, then the polyhedra are congruent; zin particular, the dihedral angles at each edge are the same. Global rigidity == unique realization

7
Same facial structure, noncongruent polyhedra

8
Spherical polygon

9
Sign Labels: {+,-,0} zCompare spherical polygons Q to Q zMark vertices according to dihedral angles: {+,-,0}. Lemma: The total number of alternations in sign around the boundary of Q is 4.

10
The spherical polygon opens. (a) Zero sign alternations; (b) Two sign alts.
