Isn't this a "complex", not a "simplex"?

## Complex/simplex

Hi there Dr. Duque,

I kind of understand a simplex to be an *n*-dimensional triangle and a special case of a simplicial complex. However, I do say
*kind of understand*. If you know that it is indeed a complex rather than a simplex, the page can be re-named. -- **Carl McBride** 16:25, 12 September 2007 (CEST)

## Triangle/triangulation

(I should check these pages more often!) Indeed, a simplex is an *n* triangle (it has *n*+1 vertices), but according to the CGAL project documentation a **triangulation** is a simplicial complex (not a triangle). Why not just leave it to "triangulation"? I think this is the usual wording.
