Simple polytopes are a classical object of convex geometry. They play a key role in many modern fields of research, such as algebraic and symplectic geometry, toric topology, enumerative combinatorics, and mathematical physics. In this paper, the results of a new approach based on a differential ring of simple polytopes are described. This approach allows one to apply the theory of differential equations to the study of combinatorial invariants of simple polytopes.
