Parameters

gon

-

the name of the polyhedron to be created

o

-

point

r

positive number

Description

• 

The functions are to define the reciprocal polyhedra of the thirteen Archimedean solids where o is the center of the polyhedron, and r the mid-radius.

• 

To access the information relating to these particular type of polyhedra, use the following function calls:

center(gon)

returns the center of gon.

faces(gon)

returns the faces of gon, each face is represented

 

as a list of coordinates of its vertices.

form(gon)

returns the form of gon.

radius(gon)

returns the mid-radius of gon.

schlafli(gon)

returns the ``Schlafli'' symbol of gon.

vertices(gon)

returns the coordinates of vertices of gon.
