Question 3: Shape of the discriminant


The discriminant of a cubic quaternary form is a degree 32 polynomial in the coefficients of the cubic. How many monomials does this polynomial have? How many vertices does its Newton polytope have, i.e., how many D-equivalence classes of regular triangulations are there?
