Tessellation
–
A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries, a periodic tiling has a repeating pattern. The patterns formed by periodic tilings can be categorized into 17 wallpaper groups, a tiling that lacks a repeating pattern is called non-periodic. An aperiodic tiling uses a set of tile shapes that cannot form a repeating pattern. In the geometry of higher dimensions, a space-filling or honeycomb is called a tessellation of space. A real physical tessellation is a made of materials such as cemented ceramic squares or hexagons. Such tilings may be decorative patterns, or may have such as providing durable and water-resistant pavement. Historically, tessellations were used in Ancient Rome and in Islamic art such as in the decorative geometric tiling of the Alhambra palace, in the twentieth century, the work of M. C. Escher often made use of tessellations, both in ordinary Euclidean geometry and in geometry, for artistic effect. Tessellations are sometimes employed for decorative effect in quilting, Tessellations form a class of patterns in nature, for example in the arrays of hexagonal cells found in honeycombs. Tessellations were used by the Sumerians in building wall decorations formed by patterns of clay tiles, decorative mosaic tilings made of small squared blocks called tesserae were widely employed in classical antiquity, sometimes displaying geometric patterns. In 1619 Johannes Kepler made a documented study of tessellations. He wrote about regular and semiregular tessellations in his Harmonices Mundi, he was possibly the first to explore and to explain the structures of honeycomb. Some two hundred years later in 1891, the Russian crystallographer Yevgraf Fyodorov proved that every periodic tiling of the features one of seventeen different groups of isometries. Fyodorovs work marked the beginning of the mathematical study of tessellations. Other prominent contributors include Shubnikov and Belov, and Heinrich Heesch, in Latin, tessella is a small cubical piece of clay, stone or glass used to make mosaics. The word tessella means small square and it corresponds to the everyday term tiling, which refers to applications of tessellations, often made of glazed clay. Tessellation or tiling in two dimensions is a topic in geometry that studies how shapes, known as tiles, can be arranged to fill a plane without any gaps, according to a given set of rules

Regular polygon
–
In Euclidean geometry, a regular polygon is a polygon that is equiangular and equilateral. Regular polygons may be convex or star, in the limit, a sequence of regular polygons with an increasing number of sides becomes a circle, if the perimeter is fixed, or a regular apeirogon, if the edge length is fixed. These properties apply to all regular polygons, whether convex or star, a regular n-sided polygon has rotational symmetry of order n. All vertices of a regular polygon lie on a common circle and that is, a regular polygon is a cyclic polygon. Together with the property of equal-length sides, this implies that every regular polygon also has a circle or incircle that is tangent to every side at the midpoint. Thus a regular polygon is a tangential polygon, a regular n-sided polygon can be constructed with compass and straightedge if and only if the odd prime factors of n are distinct Fermat primes. The symmetry group of a regular polygon is dihedral group Dn, D2, D3. It consists of the rotations in Cn, together with reflection symmetry in n axes that pass through the center, if n is even then half of these axes pass through two opposite vertices, and the other half through the midpoint of opposite sides. If n is odd then all pass through a vertex. All regular simple polygons are convex and those having the same number of sides are also similar. An n-sided convex regular polygon is denoted by its Schläfli symbol, for n <3 we have two degenerate cases, Monogon, degenerate in ordinary space. Digon, a line segment, degenerate in ordinary space. In certain contexts all the polygons considered will be regular, in such circumstances it is customary to drop the prefix regular. For instance, all the faces of uniform polyhedra must be regular, for n >2 the number of diagonals is n 2, i. e.0,2,5,9. for a triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon. The diagonals divide the polygon into 1,4,11,24, for a regular n-gon inscribed in a unit-radius circle, the product of the distances from a given vertex to all other vertices equals n. For a regular simple n-gon with circumradius R and distances di from a point in the plane to the vertices. For a regular n-gon, the sum of the distances from any interior point to the n sides is n times the apothem. This is a generalization of Vivianis theorem for the n=3 case, the sum of the perpendiculars from a regular n-gons vertices to any line tangent to the circumcircle equals n times the circumradius

Edge (geometry)
–
For edge in graph theory, see Edge In geometry, an edge is a particular type of line segment joining two vertices in a polygon, polyhedron, or higher-dimensional polytope. In a polygon, an edge is a segment on the boundary. In a polyhedron or more generally a polytope, an edge is a segment where two faces meet. A segment joining two vertices while passing through the interior or exterior is not an edge but instead is called a diagonal. In graph theory, an edge is an abstract object connecting two vertices, unlike polygon and polyhedron edges which have a concrete geometric representation as a line segment. However, any polyhedron can be represented by its skeleton or edge-skeleton, conversely, the graphs that are skeletons of three-dimensional polyhedra can be characterized by Steinitzs theorem as being exactly the 3-vertex-connected planar graphs. Any convex polyhedrons surface has Euler characteristic V − E + F =2, where V is the number of vertices, E is the number of edges and this equation is known as Eulers polyhedron formula. Thus the number of edges is 2 less than the sum of the numbers of vertices and faces, for example, a cube has 8 vertices and 6 faces, and hence 12 edges. In a polygon, two edges meet at each vertex, more generally, by Balinskis theorem, at least d edges meet at every vertex of a convex polytope. Similarly, in a polyhedron, exactly two faces meet at every edge, while in higher dimensional polytopes three or more two-dimensional faces meet at every edge. Thus, the edges of a polygon are its facets, the edges of a 3-dimensional convex polyhedron are its ridges, archived from the original on 4 February 2007

Vertex (geometry)
–
In geometry, a vertex is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet. As a consequence of this definition, the point where two lines meet to form an angle and the corners of polygons and polyhedra are vertices. A vertex is a point of a polygon, polyhedron, or other higher-dimensional polytope. However, in theory, vertices may have fewer than two incident edges, which is usually not allowed for geometric vertices. However, a smooth approximation to a polygon will also have additional vertices. A polygon vertex xi of a simple polygon P is a principal polygon vertex if the diagonal intersects the boundary of P only at x and x, there are two types of principal vertices, ears and mouths. A principal vertex xi of a simple polygon P is called an ear if the diagonal that bridges xi lies entirely in P, according to the two ears theorem, every simple polygon has at least two ears. A principal vertex xi of a simple polygon P is called a mouth if the diagonal lies outside the boundary of P. Any convex polyhedrons surface has Euler characteristic V − E + F =2, where V is the number of vertices, E is the number of edges and this equation is known as Eulers polyhedron formula. Thus the number of vertices is 2 more than the excess of the number of edges over the number of faces, for example, a cube has 12 edges and 6 faces, and hence 8 vertices

5.
Alternation (geometry)
–
In geometry, an alternation or partial truncation, is an operation on a polygon, polyhedron, tiling, or higher dimensional polytope that removes alternate vertices. Coxeter labels an alternation by a prefixed by an h, standing for hemi or half, because alternation reduce all polygon faces to half as many sides, it can only be applied for polytopes with all even-sided faces. An alternated square face becomes a digon, and being degenerate, is reduced to a single edge. More generally any vertex-uniform polyhedron or tiling with a configuration consisting of all even-numbered elements can be alternated. For example, the alternation a vertex figure with 2a. 2b. 2c is a.3. b.3. c.3 where the three is the number of elements in this vertex figure. A special case is square faces whose order divide in half into degenerate digons, a snub can be seen as an alternation of a truncated regular or truncated quasiregular polyhedron. In general a polyhedron can be snubbed if its truncation has only even-sided faces, all truncated rectified polyhedra can be snubbed, not just from regular polyhedra. The snub square antiprism is an example of a general snub and this alternation operation applies to higher-dimensional polytopes and honeycombs as well, but in general most of the results of this operation will not be uniform. The voids created by the vertices will not in general create uniform facets. Examples, Honeycombs An alternated cubic honeycomb is the tetrahedral-octahedral honeycomb, an alternated hexagonal prismatic honeycomb is the gyrated alternated cubic honeycomb. 4-polytope An alternated truncated 24-cell is the snub 24-cell, 4-honeycombs, An alternated truncated 24-cell honeycomb is the snub 24-cell honeycomb. A hypercube can always be alternated into a uniform demihypercube, cube → Tetrahedron → Tesseract → 16-cell → Penteract → demipenteract Hexeract → demihexeract. Coxeter also used the operator a, which contains both halves, so retains the original symmetry, for even-sided regular polyhedra, a represents a compound polyhedron with two opposite copies of h. For odd-sided, greater than 3, regular polyhedra a, becomes a star polyhedron, Norman Johnson extended the use of the altered operator a, b for blended, and c for converted, as, and respectively. The compound polyhedron, stellated octahedron can be represented by a, the star-polyhedron, small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron, can be represented by a, and. Here all the pentagons have been alternated into pentagrams, and triangles have been inserted to take up the free edges. A similar operation can truncate alternate vertices, rather than just removing them, below is a set of polyhedra that can be generated from the Catalan solids. These have two types of vertices which can be alternately truncated, truncating the higher order vertices and both vertex types produce these forms, Conway polyhedral notation Wythoff construction Coxeter, H.

Coxeter diagram
–
In geometry, a Coxeter–Dynkin diagram is a graph with numerically labeled edges representing the spatial relations between a collection of mirrors. It describes a kaleidoscopic construction, each node represents a mirror. An unlabeled branch implicitly represents order-3, each diagram represents a Coxeter group, and Coxeter groups are classified by their associated diagrams. Dynkin diagrams correspond to and are used to root systems. Branches of a Coxeter–Dynkin diagram are labeled with a number p. When p =2 the angle is 90° and the mirrors have no interaction, if a branch is unlabeled, it is assumed to have p =3, representing an angle of 60°. Two parallel mirrors have a branch marked with ∞, in principle, n mirrors can be represented by a complete graph in which all n /2 branches are drawn. In practice, nearly all interesting configurations of mirrors include a number of right angles, diagrams can be labeled by their graph structure. The first forms studied by Ludwig Schläfli are the orthoschemes which have linear graphs that generate regular polytopes, plagioschemes are simplices represented by branching graphs, and cycloschemes are simplices represented by cyclic graphs. Every Coxeter diagram has a corresponding Schläfli matrix with matrix elements ai, j = aj, as a matrix of cosines, it is also called a Gramian matrix after Jørgen Pedersen Gram. All Coxeter group Schläfli matrices are symmetric because their root vectors are normalized. It is related closely to the Cartan matrix, used in the similar but directed graph Dynkin diagrams in the cases of p =2,3,4, and 6. The determinant of the Schläfli matrix, called the Schläflian, and its sign determines whether the group is finite, affine and this rule is called Schläflis Criterion. The eigenvalues of the Schläfli matrix determines whether a Coxeter group is of type, affine type. The indefinite type is further subdivided, e. g. into hyperbolic. However, there are multiple non-equivalent definitions for hyperbolic Coxeter groups and we use the following definition, A Coxeter group with connected diagram is hyperbolic if it is neither of finite nor affine type, but every proper connected subdiagram is of finite or affine type. A hyperbolic Coxeter group is compact if all subgroups are finite, Finite and affine groups are also called elliptical and parabolic respectively. Hyperbolic groups are also called Lannér, after F. Lannér who enumerated the compact groups in 1950

List of planar symmetry groups
–
This article summarizes the classes of discrete symmetry groups of the Euclidean plane. The symmetry groups are named here by three naming schemes, International notation, orbifold notation, and Coxeter notation. There are three kinds of groups of the plane,2 rosette groups – 2D point groups 7 frieze groups – 2D line groups 17 wallpaper groups – 2D space groups. There are two families of discrete point groups, and they are specified with parameter n, which is the order of the group of the rotations in the group. The 7 frieze groups, the line groups, with a direction of periodicity are given with five notational names. The Schönflies notation is given as infinite limits of 7 dihedral groups, the yellow regions represent the infinite fundamental domain in each. The p1 and p2 groups, with no symmetry, are repeated in all classes. The related pure reflectional Coxeter group are given with all classes except oblique, Coxeter, edited by F.

Dual polygon
–
In geometry, polygons are associated into pairs called duals, where the vertices of one correspond to the edges of the other. The dual of a polygon is an isotoxal polygon. For example, the rectangle and rhombus are duals, in a cyclic polygon, longer sides correspond to larger exterior angles in the dual, and shorter sides to smaller angles. Further, congruent sides in the original polygon yields congruent angles in the dual, for example, the dual of a highly acute isosceles triangle is an obtuse isosceles triangle. In the Dorman Luke construction, each face of a polyhedron is the dual polygon of the corresponding vertex figure. As an example of the duality of polygons we compare properties of the cyclic. This duality is perhaps more clear when comparing an isosceles trapezoid to a kite. The simplest qualitative construction of a polygon is a rectification operation. New edges are formed between these new vertices and that is, the polygon generated by applying it twice is in general not similar to the original polygon. As with dual polyhedra, one can take a circle and perform polar reciprocation in it. Combinatorially, one can define a polygon as a set of vertices, a set of edges, then the dual polygon is obtained by simply switching the vertices and edges. Thus for the triangle with vertices and edges, the triangle has vertices, and edges, where B connects AB & BC. This is not a particularly fruitful avenue, as combinatorially, there is a family of polygons, geometric duality of polygons is more varied.

Geometry
–
Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer, Geometry arose independently in a number of early cultures as a practical way for dealing with lengths, areas, and volumes. Geometry began to see elements of mathematical science emerging in the West as early as the 6th century BC. By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into a form by Euclid, whose treatment, Euclids Elements. Geometry arose independently in India, with texts providing rules for geometric constructions appearing as early as the 3rd century BC, islamic scientists preserved Greek ideas and expanded on them during the Middle Ages. By the early 17th century, geometry had been put on a solid footing by mathematicians such as René Descartes. Since then, and into modern times, geometry has expanded into non-Euclidean geometry and manifolds, while geometry has evolved significantly throughout the years, there are some general concepts that are more or less fundamental to geometry. These include the concepts of points, lines, planes, surfaces, angles, contemporary geometry has many subfields, Euclidean geometry is geometry in its classical sense. The mandatory educational curriculum of the majority of nations includes the study of points, lines, planes, angles, triangles, congruence, similarity, solid figures, circles, Euclidean geometry also has applications in computer science, crystallography, and various branches of modern mathematics. Differential geometry uses techniques of calculus and linear algebra to problems in geometry. It has applications in physics, including in general relativity, topology is the field concerned with the properties of geometric objects that are unchanged by continuous mappings. In practice, this often means dealing with large-scale properties of spaces, convex geometry investigates convex shapes in the Euclidean space and its more abstract analogues, often using techniques of real analysis. It has close connections to convex analysis, optimization and functional analysis, algebraic geometry studies geometry through the use of multivariate polynomials and other algebraic techniques. It has applications in areas, including cryptography and string theory. Discrete geometry is concerned mainly with questions of relative position of simple objects, such as points. It shares many methods and principles with combinatorics, Geometry has applications to many fields, including art, architecture, physics, as well as to other branches of mathematics. The earliest recorded beginnings of geometry can be traced to ancient Mesopotamia, the earliest known texts on geometry are the Egyptian Rhind Papyrus and Moscow Papyrus, the Babylonian clay tablets such as Plimpton 322. For example, the Moscow Papyrus gives a formula for calculating the volume of a truncated pyramid, later clay tablets demonstrate that Babylonian astronomers implemented trapezoid procedures for computing Jupiters position and motion within time-velocity space

Polygon
–
In elementary geometry, a polygon /ˈpɒlɪɡɒn/ is a plane figure that is bounded by a finite chain of straight line segments closing in a loop to form a closed polygonal chain or circuit. These segments are called its edges or sides, and the points where two edges meet are the vertices or corners. The interior of the polygon is called its body. An n-gon is a polygon with n sides, for example, a polygon is a 2-dimensional example of the more general polytope in any number of dimensions. The basic geometrical notion of a polygon has been adapted in various ways to suit particular purposes, mathematicians are often concerned only with the bounding closed polygonal chain and with simple polygons which do not self-intersect, and they often define a polygon accordingly. A polygonal boundary may be allowed to intersect itself, creating star polygons and these and other generalizations of polygons are described below. The word polygon derives from the Greek adjective πολύς much, many and it has been suggested that γόνυ knee may be the origin of “gon”. Polygons are primarily classified by the number of sides, Polygons may be characterized by their convexity or type of non-convexity, Convex, any line drawn through the polygon meets its boundary exactly twice. As a consequence, all its interior angles are less than 180°, equivalently, any line segment with endpoints on the boundary passes through only interior points between its endpoints. Non-convex, a line may be found which meets its boundary more than twice, equivalently, there exists a line segment between two boundary points that passes outside the polygon. Simple, the boundary of the polygon does not cross itself, there is at least one interior angle greater than 180°. Star-shaped, the interior is visible from at least one point. The polygon must be simple, and may be convex or concave, self-intersecting, the boundary of the polygon crosses itself. Branko Grünbaum calls these coptic, though this term does not seem to be widely used, star polygon, a polygon which self-intersects in a regular way. A polygon cannot be both a star and star-shaped, equiangular, all corner angles are equal. Cyclic, all lie on a single circle, called the circumcircle. Isogonal or vertex-transitive, all lie within the same symmetry orbit. The polygon is cyclic and equiangular

Euclidean geometry
–
Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system attributed to the Alexandrian Greek mathematician Euclid, which he described in his textbook on geometry, the Elements. Euclids method consists in assuming a set of intuitively appealing axioms. Although many of Euclids results had been stated by earlier mathematicians, Euclid was the first to show how these propositions could fit into a comprehensive deductive and logical system. The Elements begins with plane geometry, still taught in school as the first axiomatic system. It goes on to the geometry of three dimensions. Much of the Elements states results of what are now called algebra and number theory, for more than two thousand years, the adjective Euclidean was unnecessary because no other sort of geometry had been conceived. Euclids axioms seemed so obvious that any theorem proved from them was deemed true in an absolute, often metaphysical. Today, however, many other self-consistent non-Euclidean geometries are known, Euclidean geometry is an example of synthetic geometry, in that it proceeds logically from axioms to propositions without the use of coordinates. This is in contrast to analytic geometry, which uses coordinates, the Elements is mainly a systematization of earlier knowledge of geometry. Its improvement over earlier treatments was recognized, with the result that there was little interest in preserving the earlier ones. There are 13 total books in the Elements, Books I–IV, Books V and VII–X deal with number theory, with numbers treated geometrically via their representation as line segments with various lengths. Notions such as numbers and rational and irrational numbers are introduced. The infinitude of prime numbers is proved, a typical result is the 1,3 ratio between the volume of a cone and a cylinder with the same height and base. Euclidean geometry is a system, in which all theorems are derived from a small number of axioms. To produce a straight line continuously in a straight line. To describe a circle with any centre and distance and that all right angles are equal to one another. Although Euclids statement of the only explicitly asserts the existence of the constructions. The Elements also include the five common notions, Things that are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another

Spherical geometry
–
Spherical geometry is the geometry of the two-dimensional surface of a sphere. It is an example of a geometry that is not Euclidean, two practical applications of the principles of spherical geometry are navigation and astronomy. In plane geometry, the concepts are points and lines. On a sphere, points are defined in the usual sense, the equivalents of lines are not defined in the usual sense of straight line in Euclidean geometry, but in the sense of the shortest paths between points, which are called geodesics. On a sphere, the geodesics are the circles, other geometric concepts are defined as in plane geometry. Spherical geometry is not elliptic geometry, but is rather a subset of elliptic geometry, for example, it shares with that geometry the property that a line has no parallels through a given point. An important geometry related to that of the sphere is that of the projective plane. Locally, the plane has all the properties of spherical geometry. In particular, it is non-orientable, or one-sided, Concepts of spherical geometry may also be applied to the oblong sphere, though minor modifications must be implemented on certain formulas. Higher-dimensional spherical geometries exist, see elliptic geometry, the earliest mathematical work of antiquity to come down to our time is On the rotating sphere by Autolycus of Pitane, who lived at the end of the fourth century BC. The book of unknown arcs of a written by the Islamic mathematician Al-Jayyani is considered to be the first treatise on spherical trigonometry. The book contains formulae for right-handed triangles, the law of sines. The book On Triangles by Regiomontanus, written around 1463, is the first pure trigonometrical work in Europe, however, Gerolamo Cardano noted a century later that much of its material on spherical trigonometry was taken from the twelfth-century work of the Andalusi scholar Jabir ibn Aflah.

Great circle
–
A great circle, also known as an orthodrome or Riemannian circle, of a sphere is the intersection of the sphere and a plane that passes through the center point of the sphere. This partial case of a circle of a sphere is opposed to a circle, the intersection of the sphere. Any diameter of any great circle coincides with a diameter of the sphere, and therefore all great circles have the same circumference as each other, a great circle is the largest circle that can be drawn on any given sphere. Every circle in Euclidean 3-space is a circle of exactly one sphere. For most pairs of points on the surface of a sphere, there is a great circle through the two points. The exception is a pair of points, for which there are infinitely many great circles. The minor arc of a circle between two points is the shortest surface-path between them. In this sense, the arc is analogous to “straight lines” in Euclidean geometry. The length of the arc of a great circle is taken as the distance between two points on a surface of a sphere in Riemannian geometry. The great circles are the geodesics of the sphere, in higher dimensions, the great circles on the n-sphere are the intersection of the n-sphere with 2-planes that pass through the origin in the Euclidean space Rn+1. To prove that the arc of a great circle is the shortest path connecting two points on the surface of a sphere, one can apply calculus of variations to it. Consider the class of all paths from a point p to another point q. Introduce spherical coordinates so that p coincides with the north pole. Any curve on the sphere that does not intersect either pole, except possibly at the endpoints, can be parametrized by θ = θ, ϕ = ϕ, a ≤ t ≤ b provided we allow φ to take on arbitrary real values. The infinitesimal arc length in these coordinates is d s = r θ ′2 + ϕ ′2 sin 2 θ d t. So the length of a curve γ from p to q is a functional of the curve given by S = r ∫ a b θ ′2 + ϕ ′2 sin 2 θ d t. Note that S is at least the length of the meridian from p to q, S ≥ r ∫ a b | θ ′ | d t ≥ r | θ − θ |. Since the starting point and ending point are fixed, S is minimized if and only if φ =0, so the curve must lie on a meridian of the sphere φ = φ0 = constant

Equator
–
The Equator usually refers to an imaginary line on the Earths surface equidistant from the North Pole and South Pole, dividing the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere. The Equator is about 40,075 kilometres long, some 78. 7% lies across water and 21. 3% over land, other planets and astronomical bodies have equators similarly defined. Generally, an equator is the intersection of the surface of a sphere with the plane that is perpendicular to the spheres axis of rotation. The latitude of the Earths equator is by definition 0° of arc, the equator is the only line of latitude which is also a great circle — that is, one whose plane passes through the center of the globe. The plane of Earths equator when projected outwards to the celestial sphere defines the celestial equator, in the cycle of Earths seasons, the plane of the equator passes through the Sun twice per year, at the March and September equinoxes. To an observer on the Earth, the Sun appears to travel North or South over the equator at these times, light rays from the center of the Sun are perpendicular to the surface of the Earth at the point of solar noon on the Equator. Locations on the Equator experience the quickest sunrises and sunsets because the sun moves nearly perpendicular to the horizon for most of the year. The Earth bulges slightly at the Equator, the diameter of the Earth is 12,750 kilometres. Because the Earth spins to the east, spacecraft must also launch to the east to take advantage of this Earth-boost of speed, seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earths axis relative to the plane of revolution. During the year the northern and southern hemispheres are inclined toward or away from the sun according to Earths position in its orbit, the hemisphere inclined toward the sun receives more sunlight and is in summer, while the other hemisphere receives less sun and is in winter. At the equinoxes, the Earths axis is not tilted toward the sun, instead it is perpendicular to the sun meaning that the day is about 12 hours long, as is the night, across the whole of the Earth. Near the Equator there is distinction between summer, winter, autumn, or spring. The temperatures are usually high year-round—with the exception of high mountains in South America, the temperature at the Equator can plummet during rainstorms. In many tropical regions people identify two seasons, the wet season and the dry season, but many places close to the Equator are on the oceans or rainy throughout the year, the seasons can vary depending on elevation and proximity to an ocean. The Equator lies mostly on the three largest oceans, the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Indian Ocean. The highest point on the Equator is at the elevation of 4,690 metres, at 0°0′0″N 77°59′31″W and this is slightly above the snow line, and is the only place on the Equator where snow lies on the ground. At the Equator the snow line is around 1,000 metres lower than on Mount Everest, the Equator traverses the land of 11 countries, it also passes through two island nations, though without making a landfall in either. Starting at the Prime Meridian and heading eastwards, the Equator passes through, Despite its name, however, its island of Annobón is 155 km south of the Equator, and the rest of the country lies to the north

Dihedron
–
A dihedron is a type of polyhedron, made of two polygon faces which share the same set of edges. Dihedra have also been called bihedra, flat polyhedra, or doubly covered polygons, a regular dihedron is the dihedron formed by two regular polygons, which may be described by the Schläfli symbol. As a spherical polyhedron, each polygon of such a dihedron fills a hemisphere, the dual of a n-gonal dihedron is the n-gonal hosohedron, where n digon faces share two vertices. A dihedron can be considered a degenerate prism consisting of two n-sided polygons connected back-to-back, so that the object has no depth. The polygons must be congruent, but glued in such a way one is the mirror image of the other. This characterization holds also for the distances on the surface of a dihedron, as a spherical tiling, a dihedron can exist as nondegenerate form, with two n-sided faces covering the sphere, each face being a hemisphere, and vertices around a great circle. The regular polyhedron is self-dual, and is both a hosohedron and a dihedron, in the limit the dihedron becomes an apeirogonal dihedron as a 2-dimensional tessellation, A regular ditope is an n-dimensional analogue of a dihedron, with Schläfli symbol. It has two facets, which share all ridges, in common, polyhedron Polytope Weisstein, Eric W. Dihedron

Hosohedron
–
In geometry, an n-gonal hosohedron is a tessellation of lunes on a spherical surface, such that each lune shares the same two polar opposite vertices. A regular n-gonal hosohedron has Schläfli symbol, with each spherical lune having internal angle 2π/n radians, the restriction m ≥3 enforces that the polygonal faces must have at least three sides. When considering polyhedra as a tiling, this restriction may be relaxed, since digons can be represented as spherical lunes. Allowing m =2 admits a new class of regular polyhedra. On a spherical surface, the polyhedron is represented as n abutting lunes, all these lunes share two common vertices. The digonal faces of a 2n-hosohedron, represents the fundamental domains of symmetry in three dimensions, Cnv, order 2n. The reflection domains can be shown as alternately colored lunes as mirror images, bisecting the lunes into two spherical triangles creates bipyramids and define dihedral symmetry Dnh, order 4n. The tetragonal hosohedron is topologically equivalent to the bicylinder Steinmetz solid, the dual of the n-gonal hosohedron is the n-gonal dihedron. The polyhedron is self-dual, and is both a hosohedron and a dihedron, a hosohedron may be modified in the same manner as the other polyhedra to produce a truncated variation. The truncated n-gonal hosohedron is the n-gonal prism, in the limit the hosohedron becomes an apeirogonal hosohedron as a 2-dimensional tessellation, Multidimensional analogues in general are called hosotopes. A regular hosotope with Schläfli symbol has two vertices, each with a vertex figure, the two-dimensional hosotope, is a digon. The term “hosohedron” was coined by H. S. M, Coxeter, and possibly derives from the Greek ὅσος “as many”, the idea being that a hosohedron can have “as many faces as desired”.

Antipodal point
–
This term applies to opposite points on a circle or any n-sphere. An antipodal point is called an antipode, a back-formation from the Greek loan word antipodes. On a circle, such points are also called diametrically opposite, in other words, each line through the centre intersects the sphere in two points, one for each ray out from the centre, and these two points are antipodal. The Borsuk–Ulam theorem is a result from algebraic topology dealing with pairs of points. It says that any function from Sn to Rn maps some pair of antipodal points in Sn to the same point in Rn. Here, Sn denotes the n-dimensional sphere in -dimensional space, the antipodal map A, Sn → Sn, defined by A = −x, sends every point on the sphere to its antipodal point. It is homotopic to the identity map if n is odd, if one wants to consider antipodal points as identified, one passes to projective space.

Lune (mathematics)
–
In plane geometry, a lune is the concave-convex area bounded by two circular arcs, while a convex-convex area is termed a lens. The word lune derives from luna, the Latin word for Moon, formally, a lune is the relative complement of one disk in another. Alternatively, if A and B are disks, then L = A − A ∩ B is a lune, in the 5th century BC, Hippocrates of Chios showed that certain lunes could be exactly squared by straightedge and compass.

Digon
–
In geometry, a digon is a polygon with two sides and two vertices. Its construction is degenerate in a Euclidean plane because either the two sides would coincide or one or both would have to be curved, a regular digon has both angles equal and both sides equal and is represented by Schläfli symbol. It may be constructed on a sphere as a pair of 180 degree arcs connecting antipodal points, the digon is the simplest abstract polytope of rank 2. A truncated digon, t is a square, an alternated digon, h is a monogon. A straight-sided digon is regular even though it is degenerate, because its two edges are the length and its two angles are equal. As such, the regular digon is a constructible polygon, some definitions of a polygon do not consider the digon to be a proper polygon because of its degeneracy in the Euclidean case. A digon as a face of a polyhedron is degenerate because it is a degenerate polygon, but sometimes it can have a useful topological existence in transforming polyhedra. A spherical lune is a digon whose two vertices are antipodal points on the sphere, a spherical polyhedron constructed from such digons is called a hosohedron. The digon is an important construct in the theory of networks such as graphs. Topological equivalences may be established using a process of reduction to a set of polygons. The digon represents a stage in the simplification where it can be removed and substituted by a line segment. The cyclic groups may be obtained as rotation symmetries of polygons, monogon Demihypercube Herbert Busemann, The geometry of geodesics.

List of polygons
–
In geometry, a polygon /ˈpɒlɪɡɒn/ is traditionally a plane figure that is bounded by a finite chain of straight line segments closing in a loop to form a closed chain or circuit. These segments are called its edges or sides, and the points where two edges meet are the vertices or corners. The word polygon comes from Late Latin polygōnum, from Greek πολύγωνον, noun use of neuter of πολύγωνος, individual polygons are named according to the number of sides, combining a Greek-derived numerical prefix with the suffix -gon, e. g. pentagon, dodecagon. The triangle, quadrilateral and nonagon are exceptions, although the regular forms trigon, tetragon, polygons are primarily named by prefixes from Greek numbers. To construct the name of a polygon with more than 20 and less than 100 edges, the kai connector is not included by some authors. Extending the system up to 999 is expressed with these prefixes, platonic solid Dice NAMING POLYGONS Benjamin Franklin Finkel, A Mathematical Solution Book Containing Systematic Solutions to Many of the Most Difficult Problems,1888

Triangle
–
A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted △ A B C, in Euclidean geometry any three points, when non-collinear, determine a unique triangle and a unique plane. This article is about triangles in Euclidean geometry except where otherwise noted, triangles can be classified according to the lengths of their sides, An equilateral triangle has all sides the same length. An equilateral triangle is also a polygon with all angles measuring 60°. An isosceles triangle has two sides of equal length, some mathematicians define an isosceles triangle to have exactly two equal sides, whereas others define an isosceles triangle as one with at least two equal sides. The latter definition would make all equilateral triangles isosceles triangles, the 45–45–90 right triangle, which appears in the tetrakis square tiling, is isosceles. A scalene triangle has all its sides of different lengths, equivalently, it has all angles of different measure. Hatch marks, also called tick marks, are used in diagrams of triangles, a side can be marked with a pattern of ticks, short line segments in the form of tally marks, two sides have equal lengths if they are both marked with the same pattern. In a triangle, the pattern is no more than 3 ticks. Similarly, patterns of 1,2, or 3 concentric arcs inside the angles are used to indicate equal angles, triangles can also be classified according to their internal angles, measured here in degrees. A right triangle has one of its interior angles measuring 90°, the side opposite to the right angle is the hypotenuse, the longest side of the triangle. The other two sides are called the legs or catheti of the triangle, special right triangles are right triangles with additional properties that make calculations involving them easier. One of the two most famous is the 3–4–5 right triangle, where 32 +42 =52, in this situation,3,4, and 5 are a Pythagorean triple. The other one is a triangle that has 2 angles that each measure 45 degrees. Triangles that do not have an angle measuring 90° are called oblique triangles, a triangle with all interior angles measuring less than 90° is an acute triangle or acute-angled triangle. If c is the length of the longest side, then a2 + b2 > c2, a triangle with one interior angle measuring more than 90° is an obtuse triangle or obtuse-angled triangle. If c is the length of the longest side, then a2 + b2 < c2, a triangle with an interior angle of 180° is degenerate

23.
Equilateral triangle
–
In geometry, an equilateral triangle is a triangle in which all three sides are equal. In the familiar Euclidean geometry, equilateral triangles are also equiangular and they are regular polygons, and can therefore also be referred to as regular triangles. Thus these are properties that are unique to equilateral triangles, the three medians have equal lengths. The three angle bisectors have equal lengths, every triangle center of an equilateral triangle coincides with its centroid, which implies that the equilateral triangle is the only triangle with no Euler line connecting some of the centers. For some pairs of triangle centers, the fact that they coincide is enough to ensure that the triangle is equilateral, in particular, A triangle is equilateral if any two of the circumcenter, incenter, centroid, or orthocenter coincide. It is also equilateral if its circumcenter coincides with the Nagel point, for any triangle, the three medians partition the triangle into six smaller triangles. A triangle is equilateral if and only if any three of the triangles have either the same perimeter or the same inradius. A triangle is equilateral if and only if the circumcenters of any three of the triangles have the same distance from the centroid. Morleys trisector theorem states that, in any triangle, the three points of intersection of the adjacent angle trisectors form an equilateral triangle, a version of the isoperimetric inequality for triangles states that the triangle of greatest area among all those with a given perimeter is equilateral. That is, PA, PB, and PC satisfy the inequality that any two of them sum to at least as great as the third. By Eulers inequality, the triangle has the smallest ratio R/r of the circumradius to the inradius of any triangle, specifically. The triangle of largest area of all those inscribed in a circle is equilateral. The ratio of the area of the incircle to the area of an equilateral triangle, the ratio of the area to the square of the perimeter of an equilateral triangle,1123, is larger than that for any other triangle. If a segment splits an equilateral triangle into two regions with equal perimeters and with areas A1 and A2, then 79 ≤ A1 A2 ≤97, in no other triangle is there a point for which this ratio is as small as 2. For any point P in the plane, with p, q, and t from the vertices A, B. For any point P on the circle of an equilateral triangle, with distances p, q. There are numerous triangle inequalities that hold with equality if and only if the triangle is equilateral, an equilateral triangle is the most symmetrical triangle, having 3 lines of reflection and rotational symmetry of order 3 about its center. Its symmetry group is the group of order 6 D3

24.
Isosceles triangle
–
In geometry, an isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two sides of equal length. By the isosceles triangle theorem, the two angles opposite the sides are themselves equal, while if the third side is different then the third angle is different. By the Steiner–Lehmus theorem, every triangle with two angle bisectors of equal length is isosceles, in an isosceles triangle that has exactly two equal sides, the equal sides are called legs and the third side is called the base. The angle included by the legs is called the vertex angle, the vertex opposite the base is called the apex. In the equilateral triangle case, since all sides are equal, any side can be called the base, if needed, and the term leg is not generally used. A triangle with two equal sides has exactly one axis of symmetry, which goes through the vertex angle. Thus the axis of symmetry coincides with the bisector of the vertex angle, the median drawn to the base, the altitude drawn from the vertex angle. Whether the isosceles triangle is acute, right or obtuse depends on the vertex angle, in Euclidean geometry, the base angles cannot be obtuse or right because their measures would sum to at least 180°, the total of all angles in any Euclidean triangle. The Euler line of any triangle goes through the orthocenter, its centroid. In an isosceles triangle with two equal sides, the Euler line coincides with the axis of symmetry. This can be seen as follows, if the vertex angle is acute, then the orthocenter, the centroid, and the circumcenter all fall inside the triangle. In an isosceles triangle the incenter lies on the Euler line, the Steiner inellipse of any triangle is the unique ellipse that is internally tangent to the triangles three sides at their midpoints. For any isosceles triangle with area T and perimeter p, we have 2 p b 3 − p 2 b 2 +16 T2 =0. By substituting the height, the formula for the area of a triangle can be derived from the general formula one-half the base times the height. This is what Herons formula reduces to in the isosceles case, if the apex angle and leg lengths of an isosceles triangle are known, then the area of that triangle is, T =2 = a 2 sin cos . This is derived by drawing a line from the base of the triangle. The bases of two right triangles are both equal to the hypotenuse times the sine of the bisected angle by definition of the term sine. For the same reason, the heights of these triangles are equal to the times the cosine of the bisected angle

25.
Quadrilateral
–
In Euclidean plane geometry, a quadrilateral is a polygon with four edges and four vertices or corners. Sometimes, the quadrangle is used, by analogy with triangle. The origin of the quadrilateral is the two Latin words quadri, a variant of four, and latus, meaning side. Quadrilaterals are simple or complex, also called crossed, simple quadrilaterals are either convex or concave. The interior angles of a simple quadrilateral ABCD add up to 360 degrees of arc and this is a special case of the n-gon interior angle sum formula × 180°. All non-self-crossing quadrilaterals tile the plane by repeated rotation around the midpoints of their edges, any quadrilateral that is not self-intersecting is a simple quadrilateral. In a convex quadrilateral, all angles are less than 180°. Irregular quadrilateral or trapezium, no sides are parallel, trapezium or trapezoid, at least one pair of opposite sides are parallel. Isosceles trapezium or isosceles trapezoid, one pair of sides are parallel. Alternative definitions are a quadrilateral with an axis of symmetry bisecting one pair of opposite sides, parallelogram, a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. Equivalent conditions are that opposite sides are of length, that opposite angles are equal. In other words, parallelograms include all rhombi and all rhomboids, rhombus or rhomb, all four sides are of equal length. An equivalent condition is that the diagonals bisect each other. Rhomboid, a parallelogram in which adjacent sides are of unequal lengths, not all references agree, some define a rhomboid as a parallelogram which is not a rhombus. Rectangle, all four angles are right angles, an equivalent condition is that the diagonals bisect each other and are equal in length. Square, all four sides are of length, and all four angles are right angles. An equivalent condition is that opposite sides are parallel, that the diagonals bisect each other. A quadrilateral is a if and only if it is both a rhombus and a rectangle

26.
Square
–
In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral, which means that it has four equal sides and four equal angles. It can also be defined as a rectangle in which two adjacent sides have equal length, a square with vertices ABCD would be denoted ◻ ABCD. e. A rhombus with equal diagonals a convex quadrilateral with sides a, b, c, d whose area is A =12 =12. Opposite sides of a square are both parallel and equal in length, all four angles of a square are equal. All four sides of a square are equal, the diagonals of a square are equal. The square is the n=2 case of the families of n-hypercubes and n-orthoplexes, a truncated square, t, is an octagon. An alternated square, h, is a digon, the perimeter of a square whose four sides have length ℓ is P =4 ℓ and the area A is A = ℓ2. In classical times, the power was described in terms of the area of a square. This led to the use of the square to mean raising to the second power. The area can also be calculated using the diagonal d according to A = d 22. In terms of the circumradius R, the area of a square is A =2 R2, since the area of the circle is π R2, in terms of the inradius r, the area of the square is A =4 r 2. Because it is a polygon, a square is the quadrilateral of least perimeter enclosing a given area. Dually, a square is the quadrilateral containing the largest area within a given perimeter. Indeed, if A and P are the area and perimeter enclosed by a quadrilateral, then the isoperimetric inequality holds,16 A ≤ P2 with equality if. The diagonals of a square are 2 times the length of a side of the square and this value, known as the square root of 2 or Pythagoras constant, was the first number proven to be irrational. A square can also be defined as a parallelogram with equal diagonals that bisect the angles, if a figure is both a rectangle and a rhombus, then it is a square. If a circle is circumscribed around a square, the area of the circle is π /2 times the area of the square, if a circle is inscribed in the square, the area of the circle is π /4 times the area of the square. A square has an area than any other quadrilateral with the same perimeter

27.
Rectangle
–
In Euclidean plane geometry, a rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles. It can also be defined as a quadrilateral, since equiangular means that all of its angles are equal. It can also be defined as a parallelogram containing a right angle, a rectangle with four sides of equal length is a square. The term oblong is occasionally used to refer to a non-square rectangle, a rectangle with vertices ABCD would be denoted as ABCD. The word rectangle comes from the Latin rectangulus, which is a combination of rectus and angulus, a crossed rectangle is a crossed quadrilateral which consists of two opposite sides of a rectangle along with the two diagonals. It is a case of an antiparallelogram, and its angles are not right angles. Other geometries, such as spherical, elliptic, and hyperbolic, have so-called rectangles with sides equal in length. Rectangles are involved in many tiling problems, such as tiling the plane by rectangles or tiling a rectangle by polygons, a convex quadrilateral with successive sides a, b, c, d whose area is 12. A rectangle is a case of a parallelogram in which each pair of adjacent sides is perpendicular. A parallelogram is a case of a trapezium in which both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and equal in length. A trapezium is a quadrilateral which has at least one pair of parallel opposite sides. A convex quadrilateral is Simple, The boundary does not cross itself, star-shaped, The whole interior is visible from a single point, without crossing any edge. De Villiers defines a more generally as any quadrilateral with axes of symmetry through each pair of opposite sides. This definition includes both right-angled rectangles and crossed rectangles, quadrilaterals with two axes of symmetry, each through a pair of opposite sides, belong to the larger class of quadrilaterals with at least one axis of symmetry through a pair of opposite sides. These quadrilaterals comprise isosceles trapezia and crossed isosceles trapezia, a rectangle is cyclic, all corners lie on a single circle. It is equiangular, all its corner angles are equal and it is isogonal or vertex-transitive, all corners lie within the same symmetry orbit. It has two lines of symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 2. The dual polygon of a rectangle is a rhombus, as shown in the table below, the figure formed by joining, in order, the midpoints of the sides of a rectangle is a rhombus and vice versa

28.
Rhombus
–
In Euclidean geometry, a rhombus is a simple quadrilateral whose four sides all have the same length. Another name is equilateral quadrilateral, since equilateral means that all of its sides are equal in length, every rhombus is a parallelogram and a kite. A rhombus with right angles is a square, the word rhombus comes from Greek ῥόμβος, meaning something that spins, which derives from the verb ῥέμβω, meaning to turn round and round. The word was used both by Euclid and Archimedes, who used the term solid rhombus for two right circular cones sharing a common base, the surface we refer to as rhombus today is a cross section of this solid rhombus through the apex of each of the two cones. This is a case of the superellipse, with exponent 1. Every rhombus has two diagonals connecting pairs of vertices, and two pairs of parallel sides. Using congruent triangles, one can prove that the rhombus is symmetric across each of these diagonals and it follows that any rhombus has the following properties, Opposite angles of a rhombus have equal measure. The two diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular, that is, a rhombus is an orthodiagonal quadrilateral, the first property implies that every rhombus is a parallelogram. Thus denoting the common side as a and the diagonals as p and q, not every parallelogram is a rhombus, though any parallelogram with perpendicular diagonals is a rhombus. In general, any quadrilateral with perpendicular diagonals, one of which is a line of symmetry, is a kite, every rhombus is a kite, and any quadrilateral that is both a kite and parallelogram is a rhombus. A rhombus is a tangential quadrilateral and that is, it has an inscribed circle that is tangent to all four sides. As for all parallelograms, the area K of a rhombus is the product of its base, the base is simply any side length a, K = a ⋅ h. The inradius, denoted by r, can be expressed in terms of the p and q as. The dual polygon of a rhombus is a rectangle, A rhombus has all sides equal, a rhombus has opposite angles equal, while a rectangle has opposite sides equal. A rhombus has a circle, while a rectangle has a circumcircle. A rhombus has an axis of symmetry through each pair of opposite vertex angles, the diagonals of a rhombus intersect at equal angles, while the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in length. The figure formed by joining the midpoints of the sides of a rhombus is a rectangle, a rhombohedron is a three-dimensional figure like a cube, except that its six faces are rhombi instead of squares. The rhombic dodecahedron is a polyhedron with 12 congruent rhombi as its faces

29.
Parallelogram
–
In Euclidean geometry, a parallelogram is a simple quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. The opposite or facing sides of a parallelogram are of equal length, by comparison, a quadrilateral with just one pair of parallel sides is a trapezoid in American English or a trapezium in British English. The three-dimensional counterpart of a parallelogram is a parallelepiped, rhomboid – A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel and adjacent sides are unequal, and whose angles are not right angles Rectangle – A parallelogram with four angles of equal size. Rhombus – A parallelogram with four sides of equal length, square – A parallelogram with four sides of equal length and angles of equal size. A simple quadrilateral is a if and only if any one of the following statements is true. Two pairs of opposite angles are equal in measure, one pair of opposite sides are parallel and equal in length. Each diagonal divides the quadrilateral into two congruent triangles, the sum of the squares of the sides equals the sum of the squares of the diagonals. It has rotational symmetry of order 2, the sum of the distances from any interior point to the sides is independent of the location of the point. Thus all parallelograms have all the properties listed above, and conversely, if just one of statements is true in a simple quadrilateral. Opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel and so will never intersect, the area of a parallelogram is twice the area of a triangle created by one of its diagonals. The area of a parallelogram is also equal to the magnitude of the cross product of two adjacent sides. Any line through the midpoint of a parallelogram bisects the area, any non-degenerate affine transformation takes a parallelogram to another parallelogram. A parallelogram has rotational symmetry of order 2, if it also has exactly two lines of reflectional symmetry then it must be a rhombus or an oblong. If it has four lines of symmetry, it is a square. The perimeter of a parallelogram is 2 where a and b are the lengths of adjacent sides, unlike any other convex polygon, a parallelogram cannot be inscribed in any triangle with less than twice its area. The centers of four squares all constructed either internally or externally on the sides of a parallelogram are the vertices of a square. If two lines parallel to sides of a parallelogram are constructed concurrent to a diagonal, then the parallelograms formed on opposite sides of that diagonal are equal in area, the diagonals of a parallelogram divide it into four triangles of equal area. All of the formulas for general convex quadrilaterals apply to parallelograms

30.
Trapezoid
–
The parallel sides are called the bases of the trapezoid and the other two sides are called the legs or the lateral sides. A scalene trapezoid is a trapezoid with no sides of equal measure, the first recorded use of the Greek word translated trapezoid was by Marinus Proclus in his Commentary on the first book of Euclids Elements. This article uses the term trapezoid in the sense that is current in the United States, in many other languages using a word derived from the Greek for this figure, the form closest to trapezium is used. A right trapezoid has two adjacent right angles, right trapezoids are used in the trapezoidal rule for estimating areas under a curve. An acute trapezoid has two adjacent acute angles on its longer base edge, while an obtuse trapezoid has one acute, an acute trapezoid is also an isosceles trapezoid, if its sides have the same length, and the base angles have the same measure. An obtuse trapezoid with two pairs of sides is a parallelogram. A parallelogram has central 2-fold rotational symmetry, a Saccheri quadrilateral is similar to a trapezoid in the hyperbolic plane, with two adjacent right angles, while it is a rectangle in the Euclidean plane. A Lambert quadrilateral in the plane has 3 right angles. A tangential trapezoid is a trapezoid that has an incircle, there is some disagreement whether parallelograms, which have two pairs of parallel sides, should be regarded as trapezoids. Some define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral having one pair of parallel sides. Others define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides, the latter definition is consistent with its uses in higher mathematics such as calculus. The former definition would make such concepts as the trapezoidal approximation to a definite integral ill-defined and this article uses the inclusive definition and considers parallelograms as special cases of a trapezoid. This is also advocated in the taxonomy of quadrilaterals, under the inclusive definition, all parallelograms are trapezoids. Rectangles have mirror symmetry on mid-edges, rhombuses have mirror symmetry on vertices, while squares have mirror symmetry on both mid-edges and vertices. Four lengths a, c, b, d can constitute the sides of a non-parallelogram trapezoid with a and b parallel only when | d − c | < | b − a | < d + c. The quadrilateral is a parallelogram when d − c = b − a =0, the angle between a side and a diagonal is equal to the angle between the opposite side and the same diagonal. The diagonals cut each other in mutually the same ratio, the diagonals cut the quadrilateral into four triangles of which one opposite pair are similar. The diagonals cut the quadrilateral into four triangles of which one pair have equal areas

31.
Kite (geometry)
–
In Euclidean geometry, a kite is a quadrilateral whose four sides can be grouped into two pairs of equal-length sides that are adjacent to each other. In contrast, a parallelogram also has two pairs of sides, but they are opposite to each other rather than adjacent. Kite quadrilaterals are named for the wind-blown, flying kites, which often have this shape, kites are also known as deltoids, but the word deltoid may also refer to a deltoid curve, an unrelated geometric object. A kite, as defined above, may be convex or concave. A concave kite is called a dart or arrowhead, and is a type of pseudotriangle. If all four sides of a kite have the same length, if a kite is equiangular, meaning that all four of its angles are equal, then it must also be equilateral and thus a square. A kite with three equal 108° angles and one 36° angle forms the hull of the lute of Pythagoras. The kites that are cyclic quadrilaterals are exactly the ones formed from two congruent right triangles. That is, for these kites the two angles on opposite sides of the symmetry axis are each 90 degrees. These shapes are called right kites and they are in fact bicentric quadrilaterals, among all the bicentric quadrilaterals with a given two circle radii, the one with maximum area is a right kite. The tiling that it produces by its reflections is the deltoidal trihexagonal tiling, among all quadrilaterals, the shape that has the greatest ratio of its perimeter to its diameter is an equidiagonal kite with angles π/3, 5π/12, 5π/6, 5π/12. Its four vertices lie at the three corners and one of the midpoints of the Reuleaux triangle. In non-Euclidean geometry, a Lambert quadrilateral is a kite with three right angles. A quadrilateral is a if and only if any one of the following conditions is true. One diagonal is the bisector of the other diagonal. One diagonal is a line of symmetry, one diagonal bisects a pair of opposite angles. The kites are the quadrilaterals that have an axis of symmetry along one of their diagonals, if crossings are allowed, the list of quadrilaterals with axes of symmetry must be expanded to also include the antiparallelograms. Every kite is orthodiagonal, meaning that its two diagonals are at angles to each other

32.
Hexagon
–
In geometry, a hexagon is a six sided polygon or 6-gon. The total of the angles of any hexagon is 720°. A regular hexagon has Schläfli symbol and can also be constructed as an equilateral triangle, t. A regular hexagon is defined as a hexagon that is both equilateral and equiangular and it is bicentric, meaning that it is both cyclic and tangential. The common length of the sides equals the radius of the circumscribed circle, all internal angles are 120 degrees. A regular hexagon has 6 rotational symmetries and 6 reflection symmetries, the longest diagonals of a regular hexagon, connecting diametrically opposite vertices, are twice the length of one side. Like squares and equilateral triangles, regular hexagons fit together without any gaps to tile the plane, the cells of a beehive honeycomb are hexagonal for this reason and because the shape makes efficient use of space and building materials. The Voronoi diagram of a triangular lattice is the honeycomb tessellation of hexagons. It is not usually considered a triambus, although it is equilateral, the maximal diameter, D is twice the maximal radius or circumradius, R, which equals the side length, t. The minimal diameter or the diameter of the circle, d, is twice the minimal radius or inradius. If a regular hexagon has successive vertices A, B, C, D, E, F, the regular hexagon has Dih6 symmetry, order 12. There are 3 dihedral subgroups, Dih3, Dih2, and Dih1, and 4 cyclic subgroups, Z6, Z3, Z2 and these symmetries express 9 distinct symmetries of a regular hexagon. John Conway labels these by a letter and group order, r12 is full symmetry, and a1 is no symmetry. These two forms are duals of each other and have half the order of the regular hexagon. The i4 forms are regular hexagons flattened or stretched along one symmetry direction and it can be seen as an elongated rhombus, while d2 and p2 can be seen as horizontally and vertically elongated kites. G2 hexagons, with sides parallel are also called hexagonal parallelogons. Each subgroup symmetry allows one or more degrees of freedom for irregular forms, only the g6 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can seen as directed edges.

Heptagon
–
In geometry, a heptagon is a seven-sided polygon or 7-gon. The heptagon is also referred to as the septagon, using sept- together with the Greek suffix -agon meaning angle. A regular heptagon, in all sides and all angles are equal, has internal angles of 5π/7 radians. The area of a regular heptagon of side length a is given by, the apothem is half the cotangent of π /7, and the area of each of the 14 small triangles is one-fourth of the apothem. This expression cannot be rewritten without complex components, since the indicated cubic function is casus irreducibilis. As 7 is a Pierpont prime but not a Fermat prime and this type of construction is called a neusis construction. It is also constructible with compass, straightedge and angle trisector, the impossibility of straightedge and compass construction follows from the observation that 2 cos 2 π7 ≈1.247 is a zero of the irreducible cubic x3 + x2 − 2x −1. Consequently, this polynomial is the polynomial of 2cos, whereas the degree of the minimal polynomial for a constructible number must be a power of 2. An approximation for practical use with an error of about 0. 2% is shown in the drawing and it is attributed to Albrecht Dürer. Let A lie on the circumference of the circumcircle, then B D =12 B C gives an approximation for the edge of the heptagon. Example to illustrate the error, At a circumscribed circle radius r =1 m, since 7 is a prime number there is one subgroup with dihedral symmetry, Dih1, and 2 cyclic group symmetries, Z7, and Z1. These 4 symmetries can be seen in 4 distinct symmetries on the heptagon, john Conway labels these by a letter and group order. Full symmetry of the form is r14 and no symmetry is labeled a1. The dihedral symmetries are divided depending on whether they pass through vertices or edges, cyclic symmetries in the middle column are labeled as g for their central gyration orders. Each subgroup symmetry allows one or more degrees of freedom for irregular forms, only the g7 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can seen as directed edges. However, no algebraic expressions with purely real terms exist for the solutions of this equation, because it is an example of casus irreducibilis. A heptagonal triangle has vertices coinciding with the first, second, and fourth vertices of a regular heptagon and angles π /7,2 π /7, thus its sides coincide with one side and two particular diagonals of the regular heptagon. Two kinds of star heptagons can be constructed from regular heptagons, labeled by Schläfli symbols, blue, and green star heptagons inside a red heptagon

In geometry, a nonagon /ˈnɒnəɡɒn/ is a nine-sided polygon or 9-gon. The name nonagon is a hybrid formation, from Latin, used equivalently, attested already in the 16th century in French nonogone. The name enneagon comes from Greek enneagonon, and is more correct. A regular nonagon is represented by Schläfli symbol and has angles of 140°. Although a regular nonagon is not constructible with compass and straightedge and it can be also constructed using neusis, or by allowing the use of an angle trisector.

The side of a regular decagon inscribed in a circle is −1 +52 =1 ϕ. As 10 =2 ×5, a power of two times a Fermat prime, it follows that a regular decagon is constructible using compass and straightedge, or by an edge-bisection of a regular pentagon. An alternative method is as follows, Construct a pentagon in a circle by one of the shown in constructing a pentagon. Extend a line from each vertex of the pentagon through the center of the circle to the side of that same circle. Where each line cuts the circle is a vertex of the decagon, the five corners of the pentagon constitute alternate corners of the decagon. Join these points to the adjacent new points to form the decagon, both in the construction with given circumcircle as well as with given side length is the golden ratio dividing a line segment by exterior division the determining construction element.

Because 11 is not a Pierpont prime, construction of a regular hendecagon is still impossible even with the usage of an angle trisector and it can, however, be constructed via neusis construction. Close approximations to the regular hendecagon can be constructed, however, for instance, the ancient Greek mathematicians approximated the side length of a hendecagon inscribed in a unit circle as being 14/25 units long. The following construction description is given by T, the regular hendecagon has Dih11 symmetry, order 22.

A whole regular 257-gon is not visually discernible from a circle, the regular 257-gon is of interest for being a constructible polygon, that is, it can be constructed using a compass and an unmarked straightedge. This is because 257 is a Fermat prime, being of the form 22n +1.

Chiliagon
–
In geometry, a chiliagon or 1000-gon is a polygon with 1000 sides. Philosophers commonly refer to chiliagons to illustrate ideas about the nature and workings of thought, meaning, a regular chiliagon is represented by Schläfli symbol and can be constructed as a truncated 500-gon, t, or a twice-truncated 250-gon, tt, or a thrice-truncated 125-gon, ttt. The measure of each internal angle in a regular chiliagon is 179. 64°, because 1000 =23 ×53, the number of sides is neither a product of distinct Fermat primes nor a power of two. Thus the regular chiliagon is not a constructible polygon, indeed, it is not even constructible with the use of neusis or an angle trisector, as the number of sides is neither a product of distinct Pierpont primes, nor a product of powers of two and three. René Descartes uses the chiliagon as an example in his Sixth Meditation to demonstrate the difference between pure intellection and imagination. He says that, when one thinks of a chiliagon, he does not imagine the thousand sides or see them as if they were present before him – as he does when one imagines a triangle, for example. The imagination constructs a confused representation, which is no different from that which it constructs of a myriagon, however, he does clearly understand what a chiliagon is, just as he understands what a triangle is, and he is able to distinguish it from a myriagon. Therefore, the intellect is not dependent on imagination, Descartes claims, as it is able to entertain clear, the example of a chiliagon is also referenced by other philosophers, such as Immanuel Kant. David Hume points out that it is impossible for the eye to determine the angles of a chiliagon to be equal to 1996 right angles, or make any conjecture, that approaches this proportion. Gottfried Leibniz comments on a use of the chiliagon by John Locke, noting that one can have an idea of the polygon without having an image of it, inspired by Descartess chiliagon example, Roderick Chisholm and other 20th-century philosophers have used similar examples to make similar points. Chisholms speckled hen, which need not have a number of speckles to be successfully imagined, is perhaps the most famous of these. The regular chiliagon has Dih1000 dihedral symmetry, order 2000, represented by 1000 lines of reflection. Dih100 has 15 dihedral subgroups, Dih500, Dih250, Dih125, Dih200, Dih100, Dih50, Dih25, Dih40, Dih20, Dih10, Dih5, Dih8, Dih4, Dih2, and Dih1. It also has 16 more cyclic symmetries as subgroups, Z1000, Z500, Z250, Z125, Z200, Z100, Z50, Z25, Z40, Z20, Z10, Z5, Z8, Z4, Z2, and Z1, with Zn representing π/n radian rotational symmetry. John Conway labels these symmetries with a letter and order of the symmetry follows the letter. He gives d with mirror lines through vertices, p with mirror lines through edges and these lower symmetries allows degrees of freedom in defining irregular chiliagons. Only the g1000 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can seen as directed edges, a chiliagram is a 1000-sided star polygon. There are 199 regular forms given by Schläfli symbols of the form, there are also 300 regular star figures in the remaining cases

Myriagon
–
In geometry, a myriagon or 10000-gon is a polygon with 10000 sides. Several philosophers have used the regular myriagon to illustrate issues regarding thought, the measure of each internal angle in a regular myriagon is 179. 964°. The area of a regular myriagon with sides of length a is given by A =2500 a 2 cot π10000 The result differs from the area of its circumscribed circle by up to 40 parts per billion. Because 10000 =24 ×54, the number of sides is neither a product of distinct Fermat primes nor a power of two, thus the regular myriagon is not a constructible polygon. Indeed, it is not even constructible with the use of neusis or an angle trisector, as the number of sides is neither a product of distinct Pierpont primes, the regular myriagon has Dih10000 dihedral symmetry, order 20000, represented by 10000 lines of reflection. Dih100 has 24 dihedral subgroups, and and it also has 25 more cyclic symmetries as subgroups, and, with Zn representing π/n radian rotational symmetry. John Conway labels these symmetries with a letter and order of the symmetry follows the letter. R20000 represents full symmetry, and a1 labels no symmetry and he gives d with mirror lines through vertices, p with mirror lines through edges, i with mirror lines through both vertices and edges, and g for rotational symmetry. These lower symmetries allows degrees of freedom in defining irregular myriagons, only the g10000 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can seen as directed edges. A myriagram is an 10000-sided star polygon, there are 1999 regular forms given by Schläfli symbols of the form, where n is an integer between 2 and 5000 that is coprime to 10000.

–
In geometry, a 65537-gon is a polygon with 65537 sides. The sum of the angles of any non-self-intersecting 65537-gon is 11796300°. The regular 65537-gon is of interest for being a constructible polygon, that is, it can be constructed using a compass and this is because 65537 is a Fermat prime, being of the form 22n +1. Thus, the values cos π65537 and cos 2 π65537 are of a 32768-degree algebraic numbers, although it was known to Gauss by 1801 that the regular 65537-gon was constructible, the first explicit construction of a regular 65537-gon was given by Johann Gustav Hermes. The construction is complex, Hermes spent 10 years completing the 200-page manuscript. Another method involves the use of at most 1332 Carlyle circles, and this method faces practical problems, as one of these Carlyle circles solves the quadratic equation x2 + x −16384 =0. The regular 65537-gon has Dih65537 symmetry, order 131074, since 65537 is a prime number there is one subgroup with dihedral symmetry, Dih1, and 2 cyclic group symmetries, Z65537, and Z1. A 65537-gram is a 65537-sided star polygon, as 65537 is prime, there are 32767 regular forms generated by Schläfli symbols for all integers 2 ≤ n ≤32768 as ⌊655372 ⌋ =32768.

Megagon
–
A megagon or 1000000-gon is a polygon with 1 million sides. Even if drawn at the size of the Earth, a regular megagon would be difficult to distinguish from a circle. A regular megagon has an angle of 179. 99964°. The area of a regular megagon with sides of length a is given by A =250000 a 2 cot π1000000, the perimeter of a regular megagon inscribed in the unit circle is,2000000 sin π1000000, which is very close to 2π. In fact, for a circle the size of the Earths equator, with a circumference of 40,075 kilometres, the difference between the perimeter of the inscribed megagon and the circumference of this circle comes to less than 1/16 millimeters. Because 1000000 =26 ×56, the number of sides is not a product of distinct Fermat primes, thus the regular megagon is not a constructible polygon. Indeed, it is not even constructible with the use of neusis or an angle trisector, as the number of sides is neither a product of distinct Pierpont primes, nor a product of powers of two and three. Like René Descartes example of the chiliagon, the polygon has been used as an illustration of a well-defined concept that cannot be visualised. The megagon is also used as an illustration of the convergence of regular polygons to a circle, the regular megagon has Dih1000000 dihedral symmetry, order 2000000, represented by 1000000 lines of reflection. Dih100 has 48 dihedral subgroups, and and it also has 49 more cyclic symmetries as subgroups, and, with Zn representing π/n radian rotational symmetry. John Conway labels these symmetries with a letter and order of the symmetry follows the letter. R2000000 represents full symmetry and a1 labels no symmetry and he gives d with mirror lines through vertices, p with mirror lines through edges, i with mirror lines through both vertices and edges, and g for rotational symmetry. These lower symmetries allows degrees of freedom in defining irregular megagons, only the g1000000 subgroup has no degrees of freedom but can seen as directed edges. A megagram is a star polygon. There are 199,999 regular forms given by Schläfli symbols of the form, there are also 300,000 regular star figures in the remaining cases

Apeirogon
–
In geometry, an apeirogon is a generalized polygon with a countably infinite number of sides. It can be considered as the limit of a polygon as n approaches infinity. The interior of an apeirogon can be defined by a direction order of vertices. This article describes an apeirogon in its form as a tessellation or partition of a line. A regular apeirogon has equal edge lengths, just like any regular polygon and its Schläfli symbol is, and its Coxeter-Dynkin diagram is. It is the first in the family of regular hypercubic honeycombs. This line may be considered as a circle of radius, by analogy with regular polygons with great number of edges. In two dimensions, a regular apeirogon divides the plane into two half-planes as a regular apeirogonal dihedron, the interior of an apeirogon can be defined by its orientation, filling one half plane. Dually the apeirogonal hosohedron has digon faces and a vertex figure. A truncated apeirogonal hosohedron becomes a apeirogonal prism, with each vertex bounded by two squares and an apeirogon, an alternated apeirogonal prism is a apeirogonal antiprism, with each vertex bounded by three triangles and an apeirogon. The regular apeirogon can also be seen as linear sets within 4 of the regular, uniform tilings, an isogonal apeirogon has a single type of vertex and alternates two types of edges. A quasiregular apeirogon is an isogonal apeirogon with equal edge lengths, an isotoxal apeirogon, being the dual of an isogonal one, has one type of edge, and two types of vertices, and is therefore geometrically identical to the regular apeirogon. It can be seen by drawing vertices in alternate colors. All of these will have half the symmetry of the regular apeirogon, Regular apeirogons that are scaled to converge at infinity have the symbol and exist on horocycles, while more generally they can exist on hypercycles. The regular tiling has regular apeirogon faces, hypercyclic apeirogons can also be isogonal or quasiregular, with truncated apeirogon faces, t, like the tiling tr, with two types of edges, alternately connecting to triangles or other apeirogons.

Star polygon
–
In geometry, a star polygon is a type of non-convex polygon. Only the regular polygons have been studied in any depth. The first usage is included in polygrams which includes polygons like the pentagram, star polygon names combine a numeral prefix, such as penta-, with the Greek suffix -gram. The prefix is normally a Greek cardinal, but synonyms using other prefixes exist, for example, a nine-pointed polygon or enneagram is also known as a nonagram, using the ordinal nona from Latin. The -gram suffix derives from γραμμή meaning a line, alternatively for integers p and q, it can be considered as being constructed by connecting every qth point out of p points regularly spaced in a circular placement. A regular star polygon is denoted by its Schläfli symbol, where p and q are relatively prime, the symmetry group of is dihedral group Dn of order 2n, independent of k. A regular star polygon can also be obtained as a sequence of stellations of a regular core polygon. Regular star polygons were first studied systematically by Thomas Bradwardine, if p and q are not coprime, a degenerate polygon will result with coinciding vertices and edges. For example will appear as a triangle, but can be labeled with two sets of vertices 1-6 and this should be seen not as two overlapping triangles, but a double-winding of a single unicursal hexagon. For |n/d|, the vertices have an exterior angle, β. These polygons are often seen in tiling patterns, the parametric angle α can be chosen to match internal angles of neighboring polygons in a tessellation pattern. The interior of a polygon may be treated in different ways. Three such treatments are illustrated for a pentagram, branko Grunbaum and Geoffrey Shephard consider two of them, as regular star polygons and concave isogonal 2n-gons. These include, Where a side occurs, one side is treated as outside and this is shown in the left hand illustration and commonly occurs in computer vector graphics rendering. The number of times that the polygonal curve winds around a given region determines its density, the exterior is given a density of 0, and any region of density >0 is treated as internal. This is shown in the illustration and commonly occurs in the mathematical treatment of polyhedra. Where a line may be drawn between two sides, the region in which the line lies is treated as inside the figure and this is shown in the right hand illustration and commonly occurs when making a physical model. When the area of the polygon is calculated, each of these approaches yields a different answer, star polygons feature prominently in art and culture

Pentagram
–
A pentagram is the shape of a five-pointed star drawn with five straight strokes. The word pentagram comes from the Greek word πεντάγραμμον, from πέντε, five + γραμμή, the word pentacle is sometimes used synonymously with pentagram The word pentalpha is a learned modern revival of a post-classical Greek name of the shape. The pentagram is the simplest regular star polygon, the pentagram contains ten points and fifteen line segments. It is represented by the Schläfli symbol, like a regular pentagon, and a regular pentagon with a pentagram constructed inside it, the regular pentagram has as its symmetry group the dihedral group of order 10. The pentagram can be constructed by connecting alternate vertices of a pentagon and it can also be constructed as a stellation of a pentagon, by extending the edges of a pentagon until the lines intersect. Each intersection of edges sections the edges in the golden ratio, also, the ratio of the length of the shorter segment to the segment bounded by the two intersecting edges is φ. As the four-color illustration shows, r e d g r e e n = g r e e n b l u e = b l u e m a g e n t a = φ. The pentagram includes ten isosceles triangles, five acute and five obtuse isosceles triangles, in all of them, the ratio of the longer side to the shorter side is φ. The acute triangles are golden triangles, the obtuse isosceles triangle highlighted via the colored lines in the illustration is a golden gnomon. The pentagram of Venus is the apparent path of the planet Venus as observed from Earth, the tips of the five loops at the center of the figure have the same geometric relationship to one another as the five vertices, or points, of a pentagram. Groups of five intersections of curves, equidistant from the center, have the same geometric relationship. In early monumental Sumerian script, or cuneiform, a pentagram glyph served as a logogram for the word ub, meaning corner, angle, nook, the word Pentemychos was the title of the cosmogony of Pherecydes of Syros. Here, the five corners are where the seeds of Chronos are placed within the Earth in order for the cosmos to appear. The pentangle plays an important symbolic role in the 14th-century English poem Sir Gawain, heinrich Cornelius Agrippa and others perpetuated the popularity of the pentagram as a magic symbol, attributing the five neoplatonic elements to the five points, in typical Renaissance fashion. By the mid-19th century a distinction had developed amongst occultists regarding the pentagrams orientation. With a single point upwards it depicted spirit presiding over the four elements of matter, however, the influential writer Eliphas Levi called it evil whenever the symbol appeared the other way up. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns and it is the sign of antagonism and fatality. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns, faust, The pentagram thy peace doth mar

Hexagram
–
A hexagram or sexagram is a six-pointed geometric star figure with the Schläfli symbol,2, or. It is the compound of two equilateral triangles, the intersection is a regular hexagon. It is used in historical, religious and cultural contexts, for example in Hanafism, Jewish identity, in mathematics, the root system for the simple Lie group G2 is in the form of a hexagram, with six long roots and six short roots. A six-pointed star, like a hexagon, can be created using a compass. Without changing the radius of the compass, set its pivot on the circles circumference, with the pivot on the last point found, similarly find a third point on the circumference, and repeat until six such points have been marked. With a straight edge, join alternate points on the circumference to form two overlapping equilateral triangles. It is possible that as a geometric shape, like for example the triangle, circle, or square. The hexagram is a symbol called satkona yantra or sadkona yantra found on ancient South Indian Hindu temples. It symbolizes the nara-narayana, or perfect meditative state of balance achieved between Man and God, and if maintained, results in moksha, or nirvana, some researchers have theorized that the hexagram represents the astrological chart at the time of Davids birth or anointment as king. The hexagram is also known as the Kings Star in astrological circles, in antique papyri, pentagrams, together with stars and other signs, are frequently found on amulets bearing the Jewish names of God, and used to guard against fever and other diseases. Curiously the hexagram is not found among these signs, in the Greek Magical Papyri at Paris and London there are 22 signs side by side, and a circle with twelve signs, but neither a pentagram nor a hexagram. Six-pointed stars have also found in cosmological diagrams in Hinduism, Buddhism. The reasons behind this symbols common appearance in Indic religions and the West are unknown, one possibility is that they have a common origin. The other possibility is that artists and religious people from several cultures independently created the hexagram shape, within Indic lore, the shape is generally understood to consist of two triangles—one pointed up and the other down—locked in harmonious embrace. The two components are called Om and the Hrim in Sanskrit, and symbolize mans position between earth and sky, the downward triangle symbolizes Shakti, the sacred embodiment of femininity, and the upward triangle symbolizes Shiva, or Agni Tattva, representing the focused aspects of masculinity. The mystical union of the two triangles represents Creation, occurring through the union of male and female. The two locked triangles are known as Shanmukha—the six-faced, representing the six faces of Shiva & Shaktis progeny Kartikeya. This symbol is also a part of several yantras and has significance in Hindu ritual worship

Heptagram
–
A heptagram, septagram, or septogram is a seven-point star drawn with seven straight strokes. The name heptagram combines a numeral prefix, hepta-, with the Greek suffix -gram, the -gram suffix derives from γραμμῆς meaning a line. In general, a heptagram is any self-intersecting heptagon, there are two regular heptagrams, labeled as and, with the second number representing the vertex interval step from a regular heptagon. This is the smallest star polygon that can be drawn in two forms, as irreducible fractions, the two heptagrams are sometimes called the heptagram and the great heptagram. The previous one, the hexagram, is a compound of two triangles. The smallest star polygon is the pentagram, the next one is the octagram, followed by the regular enneagram, which also has two forms, and, as well as one compound of three triangles. The heptagram was used in Christianity to symbolize the seven days of creation, the heptagram is a symbol of perfection in many Christian sects. The heptagram is used in the symbol for Babalon in Thelema, the heptagram is known among neopagans as the Elven Star or Fairy Star. It is treated as a symbol in various modern pagan. Blue Star Wicca also uses the symbol, where it is referred to as a septegram, the second heptagram is a symbol of magical power in some pagan spiritualities. The heptagram is used by members of the otherkin subculture as an identifier. In alchemy, a star can refer to the seven planets which were known to ancient alchemists. The seven-pointed star is incorporated into the flags of the bands of the Cherokee Nation. The Bennington flag, a historical American Flag, has thirteen seven-pointed stars along with the numerals 76 in the canton, the Flag of Jordan contains a seven-pointed star. The Flag of Australia employs five heptagrams and one pentagram to depict the Southern Cross constellation, some old versions of the coat of arms of Georgia including the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic used the heptagram as an element. A seven-pointed star is used as the badge in many sheriffs departments, the seven-pointed star is used as the logo for the international Danish shipping company A. P.

In geometry, an octagram is an eight-angled star polygon. The name octagram combine a Greek numeral prefix, octa-, with the Greek suffix -gram, the -gram suffix derives from γραμμή meaning line. In general, an octagram is any self-intersecting octagon, the regular octagram is labeled by the Schläfli symbol, which means an 8-sided star, connected by every third point. These variations have a dihedral, Dih4, symmetry, The symbol Rub el Hizb is a Unicode glyph ۞ at U+06DE. Deeper truncations of the square can produce intermediate star polygon forms with equal spaced vertices. A truncated square is an octagon, t=, a quasitruncated square, inverted as, is an octagram, t=. The uniform star polyhedron stellated truncated hexahedron, t=t has octagram faces constructed from the cube in this way, there are two regular octagrammic star figures of the form, the first constructed as two squares =2, and second as four degenerate digons, =4.

Enneagram (geometry)
–
In geometry, an enneagram is a nine-pointed plane figure. It is sometimes called a nonagram, the name enneagram combines the numeral prefix, ennea-, with the Greek suffix -gram. The -gram suffix derives from γραμμῆς meaning a line, a regular enneagram is constructed using the same points as the regular enneagon but connected in fixed steps. It has two forms, represented by a Schläfli symbol as and, connecting every second and every fourth points respectively, there is also a star figure, or 3, made from the regular enneagon points but connected as a compound of three equilateral triangles. This star figure is known as the star of Goliath, after or 2. The nine-pointed star or enneagram can also symbolize the nine gifts or fruits of the Holy Spirit, the heavy metal band Slipknot uses the star figure enneagram as a symbol.

Decagram (geometry)
–
In geometry, a decagram is a 10-point star polygon. There is one regular decagram, containing the vertices of a regular decagon, the name decagram combine a numeral prefix, deca-, with the Greek suffix -gram. The -gram suffix derives from γραμμῆς meaning a line, for a regular decagram with unit edge lengths, the proportions of the crossing points on each edge are as shown below. Decagrams have been used as one of the motifs in girih tiles. A regular decagram is a 10-sided polygram, represented by symbol, deeper truncations of the regular pentagon and pentagram can produce intermediate star polygon forms with ten equally spaced vertices and two edge lengths that remain vertex-transitive.

Hendecagram
–
In geometry, a hendecagram is a star polygon that has eleven vertices. The name hendecagram combines a Greek numeral prefix, hendeca-, with the Greek suffix -gram, the hendeca- prefix derives from Greek ἕνδεκα meaning eleven. The -gram suffix derives from γραμμῆς meaning a line and these same four forms can also be considered as stellations of a regular hendecagon. As with all odd regular polygons and star polygons whose orders are not products of distinct Fermat primes, however, Hilton & Pedersen describe folding patterns for making the hendecagrams, and out of strips of paper. Prisms over the hendecagrams and may be used to approximate the shape of DNA molecules, fort Wood, now the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York City, is a star fort in the form of an irregular 11-point star. The Topkapı Scroll contains images of an 11-pointed star Girih form used in Islamic art, the star in this scroll is not one of the regular forms of the hendecagram, but instead uses lines that connect the vertices of a hendecagon to nearly-opposite midpoints of the hendecagons edges. 11-pointed star Girih patterns are used on the exterior of the Momine Khatun Mausoleum.

Polyhedron
–
In geometry, a polyhedron is a solid in three dimensions with flat polygonal faces, straight edges and sharp corners or vertices. The word polyhedron comes from the Classical Greek πολύεδρον, as poly- + -hedron, a convex polyhedron is the convex hull of finitely many points, not all on the same plane. Cubes and pyramids are examples of convex polyhedra, a polyhedron is a 3-dimensional example of the more general polytope in any number of dimensions. Convex polyhedra are well-defined, with several equivalent standard definitions, however, the formal mathematical definition of polyhedra that are not required to be convex has been problematic. Many definitions of polyhedron have been given within particular contexts, some more rigorous than others, some of these definitions exclude shapes that have often been counted as polyhedra or include shapes that are often not considered as valid polyhedra. As Branko Grünbaum observed, The Original Sin in the theory of polyhedra goes back to Euclid, the writers failed to define what are the polyhedra. Nevertheless, there is agreement that a polyhedron is a solid or surface that can be described by its vertices, edges, faces. Natural refinements of this definition require the solid to be bounded, to have a connected interior, and possibly also to have a connected boundary. However, the polyhedra defined in this way do not include the self-crossing star polyhedra, their faces may not form simple polygons, definitions based on the idea of a bounding surface rather than a solid are also common. If a planar part of such a surface is not itself a convex polygon, ORourke requires it to be subdivided into smaller convex polygons, cromwell gives a similar definition but without the restriction of three edges per vertex. Again, this type of definition does not encompass the self-crossing polyhedra, however, there exist topological polyhedra that cannot be realized as acoptic polyhedra. One modern approach is based on the theory of abstract polyhedra and these can be defined as partially ordered sets whose elements are the vertices, edges, and faces of a polyhedron. A vertex or edge element is less than an edge or face element when the vertex or edge is part of the edge or face, additionally, one may include a special bottom element of this partial order and a top element representing the whole polyhedron. However, these requirements are relaxed, to instead require only that the sections between elements two levels apart from line segments. Geometric polyhedra, defined in other ways, can be described abstractly in this way, a realization of an abstract polyhedron is generally taken to be a mapping from the vertices of the abstract polyhedron to geometric points, such that the points of each face are coplanar. A geometric polyhedron can then be defined as a realization of an abstract polyhedron, realizations that forgo the requirement of planarity, that impose additional requirements of symmetry, or that map the vertices to higher dimensional spaces have also been considered. Unlike the solid-based and surface-based definitions, this perfectly well for star polyhedra. However, without restrictions, this definition allows degenerate or unfaithful polyhedra

Monohedron
–
In geometry a monogon is a polygon with one edge and one vertex. Since a monogon has only one side and only one vertex, in Euclidean geometry a monogon is a degenerate polygon because its endpoints must coincide, unlike any Euclidean line segment. Most definitions of a polygon in Euclidean geometry do not admit the monogon, in spherical geometry, a monogon can be constructed as a vertex on a great circle. This forms a dihedron, with two hemispherical monogonal faces which share one 360° edge and one vertex and its dual, a hosohedron, has two antipodal vertices at the poles, one 360 degree lune face, and one edge between the two vertices.

Trihedron
–
In geometry, an n-gonal hosohedron is a tessellation of lunes on a spherical surface, such that each lune shares the same two polar opposite vertices. A regular n-gonal hosohedron has Schläfli symbol, with each spherical lune having internal angle 2π/n radians, the restriction m ≥3 enforces that the polygonal faces must have at least three sides. When considering polyhedra as a tiling, this restriction may be relaxed, since digons can be represented as spherical lunes. Allowing m =2 admits a new class of regular polyhedra. On a spherical surface, the polyhedron is represented as n abutting lunes, all these lunes share two common vertices. The digonal faces of a 2n-hosohedron, represents the fundamental domains of symmetry in three dimensions, Cnv, order 2n. The reflection domains can be shown as alternately colored lunes as mirror images, bisecting the lunes into two spherical triangles creates bipyramids and define dihedral symmetry Dnh, order 4n. The tetragonal hosohedron is topologically equivalent to the bicylinder Steinmetz solid, the dual of the n-gonal hosohedron is the n-gonal dihedron. The polyhedron is self-dual, and is both a hosohedron and a dihedron, a hosohedron may be modified in the same manner as the other polyhedra to produce a truncated variation. The truncated n-gonal hosohedron is the n-gonal prism, in the limit the hosohedron becomes an apeirogonal hosohedron as a 2-dimensional tessellation, Multidimensional analogues in general are called hosotopes. A regular hosotope with Schläfli symbol has two vertices, each with a vertex figure, the two-dimensional hosotope, is a digon. The term “hosohedron” was coined by H. S. M, Coxeter, and possibly derives from the Greek ὅσος “as many”, the idea being that a hosohedron can have “as many faces as desired”.

Tetrahedron
–
In geometry, a tetrahedron, also known as a triangular pyramid, is a polyhedron composed of four triangular faces, six straight edges, and four vertex corners. The tetrahedron is the simplest of all the ordinary convex polyhedra, the tetrahedron is the three-dimensional case of the more general concept of a Euclidean simplex. The tetrahedron is one kind of pyramid, which is a polyhedron with a polygon base. In the case of a tetrahedron the base is a triangle, like all convex polyhedra, a tetrahedron can be folded from a single sheet of paper. For any tetrahedron there exists a sphere on which all four vertices lie, a regular tetrahedron is one in which all four faces are equilateral triangles. It is one of the five regular Platonic solids, which have known since antiquity. In a regular tetrahedron, not only are all its faces the same size and shape, regular tetrahedra alone do not tessellate, but if alternated with regular octahedra they form the alternated cubic honeycomb, which is a tessellation. The regular tetrahedron is self-dual, which means that its dual is another regular tetrahedron, the compound figure comprising two such dual tetrahedra form a stellated octahedron or stella octangula. This form has Coxeter diagram and Schläfli symbol h, the tetrahedron in this case has edge length 2√2. Inverting these coordinates generates the dual tetrahedron, and the together form the stellated octahedron. In other words, if C is the centroid of the base and this follows from the fact that the medians of a triangle intersect at its centroid, and this point divides each of them in two segments, one of which is twice as long as the other. The vertices of a cube can be grouped into two groups of four, each forming a regular tetrahedron, the symmetries of a regular tetrahedron correspond to half of those of a cube, those that map the tetrahedra to themselves, and not to each other. The tetrahedron is the only Platonic solid that is not mapped to itself by point inversion, the regular tetrahedron has 24 isometries, forming the symmetry group Td, isomorphic to the symmetric group, S4. The first corresponds to the A2 Coxeter plane, the two skew perpendicular opposite edges of a regular tetrahedron define a set of parallel planes. When one of these intersects the tetrahedron the resulting cross section is a rectangle. When the intersecting plane is one of the edges the rectangle is long. When halfway between the two edges the intersection is a square, the aspect ratio of the rectangle reverses as you pass this halfway point. For the midpoint square intersection the resulting boundary line traverses every face of the tetrahedron similarly, if the tetrahedron is bisected on this plane, both halves become wedges

74.
Pentahedron
–
In geometry, a pentahedron is a polyhedron with five faces. Since there are no face-transitive polyhedra with five sides and there are two distinct types, this term is less frequently used than tetrahedron or octahedron. With regular polygon faces, the two forms are the square pyramid and triangular prism. Geometric variations with irregular faces can also be constructed, the square pyramid can be seen as a degenerate triangular prism where one edge of its side edges is collapsed into a point, losing one edge and one vertex, and changing two squares into triangles. An irregular pentahedron can be a non-convex solid, there is a third topological polyhedral figure with 5 faces, degenerate as a polyhedron, it exists as a spherical tiling of digon faces, called a pentagonal hosohedron with Schläfli symbol. It has 2 vertices,5 edges, and 5 digonal faces

75.
Octahedron
–
In geometry, an octahedron is a polyhedron with eight faces, twelve edges, and six vertices. A regular octahedron is a Platonic solid composed of eight equilateral triangles, a regular octahedron is the dual polyhedron of a cube. It is a square bipyramid in any of three orthogonal orientations and it is also a triangular antiprism in any of four orientations. An octahedron is the case of the more general concept of a cross polytope. A regular octahedron is a 3-ball in the Manhattan metric, the second and third correspond to the B2 and A2 Coxeter planes. The octahedron can also be represented as a tiling. This projection is conformal, preserving angles but not areas or lengths, straight lines on the sphere are projected as circular arcs on the plane. An octahedron with edge length √2 can be placed with its center at the origin and its vertices on the coordinate axes, the Cartesian coordinates of the vertices are then. In an x–y–z Cartesian coordinate system, the octahedron with center coordinates, additionally the inertia tensor of the stretched octahedron is I =. These reduce to the equations for the regular octahedron when x m = y m = z m = a 22, the interior of the compound of two dual tetrahedra is an octahedron, and this compound, called the stella octangula, is its first and only stellation. Correspondingly, an octahedron is the result of cutting off from a regular tetrahedron. One can also divide the edges of an octahedron in the ratio of the mean to define the vertices of an icosahedron. There are five octahedra that define any given icosahedron in this fashion, octahedra and tetrahedra can be alternated to form a vertex, edge, and face-uniform tessellation of space, called the octet truss by Buckminster Fuller. This is the only such tiling save the regular tessellation of cubes, another is a tessellation of octahedra and cuboctahedra. The octahedron is unique among the Platonic solids in having a number of faces meeting at each vertex. Consequently, it is the member of that group to possess mirror planes that do not pass through any of the faces. Using the standard nomenclature for Johnson solids, an octahedron would be called a square bipyramid, truncation of two opposite vertices results in a square bifrustum. The octahedron is 4-connected, meaning that it takes the removal of four vertices to disconnect the remaining vertices and it is one of only four 4-connected simplicial well-covered polyhedra, meaning that all of the maximal independent sets of its vertices have the same size

76.
Enneahedron
–
In geometry, an enneahedron is a polyhedron with nine faces. There are 2606 types of convex enneahedron, each having a different pattern of vertex, edge, the most familiar enneahedra are the octagonal pyramid and the heptagonal prism. The heptagonal prism is a polyhedron, with two regular heptagon faces and seven square faces. The octagonal pyramid has eight triangular faces around a regular octagonal base. Two more enneahedra are also found among the Johnson solids, the square pyramid. The three-dimensional associahedron, a near-miss Johnson solid with six pentagonal faces, five Johnson solids have enneahedral duals, the triangular cupola, gyroelongated square pyramid, self-dual elongated square pyramid, triaugmented triangular prism, and tridiminished icosahedron. Another enneahedron is the diminished trapezohedron with a base, and 4 kite and 4 triangle faces. The Herschel graph also represents the vertices and edges of an enneahedron and it is the simplest polyhedron without a Hamiltonian cycle, the only enneahedron in which all faces have the same number of edges, and one of only three bipartite enneahedra. The two smallest isospectral polyhedral graphs are enneahedra with eight vertices each, like the rhombic dodecahedron itself, this shape can be used to tessellate three-dimensional space. An elongated form of shape that still tiles space can be seen atop the rear side towers of the 12th-century Romanesque Basilica of Our Lady. The towers themselves, with their four pentagonal sides, four roof facets, more generally, Goldberg found at least 40 topologically distinct space-filling enneahedra. There are 2606 topologically distinct convex enneahedra, excluding mirror images and these can be divided into subsets of 8,74,296,633,768,558,219,50, with 7 to 14 vertices respectively. A table of numbers, together with a detailed description of the nine-vertex enneahedra, was first published in the 1870s by Thomas Kirkman. Enumeration of Polyhedra by Steven Dutch Weisstein, Eric W.
