On the Size of Equifacetted Semi-Regular Polytopes

Unlike the situation in the classical theory of convex polytopes, there is a wealth of semi-regular abstract polytopes, including interesting examples exhibiting some unexpected phenomena. We prove

Spectra of semi-regular polytopesNicolau

We compute the spectra of the adjacency matrices of the semi-regular polytopes. A few diierent techniques are employed: the most sophisticated, which relates the 1-skeleton of the polytope to a

Polytopes with Preassigned Automorphism Groups

We prove that every finite group is the automorphism group of a finite abstract polytope isomorphic to a face-to-face tessellation of a sphere by topological copies of convex polytopes. We also show

Some examples of semi-nodal perfect 4-polytopes

Existence of a semi-nodal perfect polytope means that there is a perfect polytope P such that both P and its polar P ∗ has vertices of not only zero degree of freedom. Yet, it is perfect, i.e. its

Polytopes, quasi-minuscule representations and rational surfaces

We describe the relation between quasi-minuscule representations, polytopes and Weyl group orbits in Picard lattices of rational surfaces. As an application, to each quasi-minuscule representation we

Symmetric matroid polytopes and their generation

Regular and chiral polytopes in low dimensions

There are two main thrusts in the theory of regular and chi- ral polytopes: the abstract, purely combinatorial aspect, and the geo- metric one of realizations. This brief survey concentrates on the

A Hierarchical Classification of Euclidean Polytopes with Regularity Properties

During the last decades, many mathematicians investigated classes of poly topes which are determined by natural weakenings of the definitions of regular polytopes. Examples are the sets of

On Perfect 4-Polytopes

The concept of perfection of a polytope was introduced by S. A. Robertson. Intuitively speaking, a polytope P is perfect if and only if it cannot be deformed to a polytope of dierent shape without



Finite groups generated by reflections, and their subgroups generated by reflections

In connection with his work on singularities of surfaces, Du Val asked me to enumerate certain subgroups in the symmetry groups of the “pure Archimedean” polytopes n21 (n < 5), namely those subgroups

The Pure Archimedean Polytopes in Six and Seven Dimensions

An Archimedean solid (in three dimensions) may be defined as a polyhedron whose faces are regular polygons of two or more kinds and whose vertices are all surrounded in the same way. For example, the

Mathematical Recreations and Essays

THIS edition differs from the third by containing chapters on the history of the mathematical tripos at Cambridge, Mersenne's numbers, and cryptography and ciphers, besides descriptions of some
