An interesting set of geometric figures is composed of the convex polyhedra in Euclidean 3-space whose faces are regular polygons (not necessarily all of the same kind). A polyhedron with regular faces is uniform if it has symmetry operations taking a given vertex into each of the other vertices in turn (5, p. 402). If in addition all the faces are alike, the polyhedron is regular. That there are just five convex regular polyhedra—the so-called Platonic solids—was proved by Euclid in the… 

Convex regular-faced polyhedra indecomposable by any plane to regular-faced polyhedra

A convex polyhedron with regular faces or with faces decomposable by two regular polygons is called indecomposable if any section plane dissects this polyhedron into two parts so that at least one of

Junction of noncomposite polyhedra

All 3-dimensional convex regular-hedra are found, i.e., the convex polyhedra having positive curvature of each vertex and such that every face is either a regular polygon or is composed of two

Wythoffian Skeletal Polyhedra in Ordinary Space, I

The blueprint for the construction is described and the Wythoffians for distinguished classes of regular polyhedra are treated, which are vertex-transitive and often feature vertex configurations with an attractive mix of different face shapes.

Regular Polyhedral Clones

For any polyhedron (3-polytope) P in ordinary three-dimensional space let S(P) denote its surface, that is, the union of its (closed) 2-faces. If P 1 and P 2 are given polyhedra, they are said to be

Areas of spherical polyhedral surfaces with regular faces

For a finite planar graph, it associates with some metric spaces, called (regular) spherical polyhedral surfaces, by replacing faces with regular spherical polygons in the unit sphere and gluing them

Small Icosahedral Clusters

In geometry, any polyhedron with 12 faces is named a dodecahedron, among which only one is the regular dodecahedron (i.e. the Platonic solid), composed of 12 regular pentagonal faces, 3 of which
