What do the following seven things have in common: * zero-dimensional homogeneous polynomial ideals, * multivariate polynomial interpolation, * box splines, * hyperplane arrangements, * parking functions on graphs, * f-vectors of matroids, * integer points in zonotopes ? They turn out to be different sides of one story, which the speaker intends to tell.
