Inside and Outside the Rhombic Hexecontahedron
(Proceedings pages 387–394)
The rhombic hexecontahedron is a twenty-pointed star polyhedron
that is bounded by sixty golden rhombi. It can be understood as a
stellation of its relative, the Keplerian rhombic triacontahedron,
or as the assembly as twenty prolate golden rhombohedra. This study
investigates these relationships and the possible structures that
can be created by dissecting and recombining parts of these forms.
Many possible structures are introduced with the help of Wolfram
Mathematica graphics, the Zometool construction set, and the author's
own StyroBlock modeling system, see www.kabai.hu).
