On the moduli space of polygons in the Euclidean plane. (English) Zbl 0854.51016

The topology of moduli spaces of polygons with fixed side lengths in the Euclidean plane is studied. A duality between the spaces of marked Euclidean polygons with fixed side length and marked convex polygons with prescribed angles is established.
