Since the Euler characteristic of P is inherently related to both the combinatorial and topological structure of P, we will also be interested in studying the (reduced) Betti numbers of P (over a field k), which are defined as [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
On the other hand, it is a general fact that the sum of the betti numbers of a manifold M is a lower bound for the number of critical points of any Morse function on M.
