Serie XVII, Nr 6b

Regular polyhedron corresponding to a regular partition of the surface of the sphere. The octahedral type.


Mathematical description
The model represents a regular polyhedron corresponding to a regular partition of the surface of the sphere. This model is of octahedral type, i.e., the sphere is divided in 48 triangles with angles π/2, π/3, π/4. This triangles are given by the following:

                    t = vw(v4-w4)
                    W = v8 + 14v4w4+w8
                    χ = v12 + 33v8w4 - 33v4w8 + w12,
where 108t4-W82=0.
