  • A significant range of geometric structures whose rigidity has been explored, for both practical and theoretical purposes, are formed by modifying generically isostatic triangulated spheres. In block and hole structures $(\mathcal{P},\boldsymbol{p})$, some edges are removed (to make holes) and others are added (to create rigid subparts called blocks). Previous work noted a combinatorial analogy, in which blocks and holes played equivalent roles—so that they might be interchanged. In this paper… CONTINUE READING
