\begin{abstract}
\begin{sloppypar}
The second hypersimplex $\Delta(2,n)$ is the convex hull of the columns
of the vertex-edge incidence matrix of the complete graph $K_n$.
In this talk we employ the algebraic technique of Groebner bases
to study triangulations of this polytope. We compare the secondary
polytope of $\Delta(2,n)$ with the state polytope of the associated
toric ideal, and we present an explicit non-regular triangulation
for $n \geq 9$. Relations to combinatorial optimization and random graphs
will be indicated. This is joint work with Jesus DeLoera and Rekha
Thomas.
