Ditrigonal polyhedron

(Redirected from Ditrigonal)

In geometry, there are seven uniform and uniform dual polyhedra named as ditrigonal.

Ditrigonal vertex figures

There are five uniform ditrigonal polyhedra, all with icosahedral symmetry.

The three uniform star polyhedron with Wythoff symbol of the form 3 | p q or 3/2 | p q are ditrigonal, at least if p and q are not 2. Each polyhedron includes two types of faces, being of triangles, pentagons, or pentagrams. Their vertex configurations are of the form p.q.p.q.p.q or (p.q)3 with a symmetry of order 3. Here, term ditrigonal refers to a hexagon having a symmetry of order 3 (triangular symmetry) acting with 2 rotational orbits on the 6 angles of the vertex figure (the word ditrigonal means "having two sets of 3 angles").
