### Abstract

Continuing earlier work by Szekelyhidi, we describe the topological and geometric structure of so-called T-4-configurations which are the most prominent examples of nontrivial rank-one convex hulls. It turns out that the structure of T-4-configurations in R-2x2 is very rich; in particular, their collection is open as a subset of (R-2x2)(4). Moreover a previously purely algebraic criterion is given a geometric interpretation. As a consequence, we sketch an improved algorithm to detect T-4-configurations.
