Soccer Balls

(Proceedings pages 447–450)


The paper presents variations on the soccer ball: from the standard truncated icosahedron to hyperbolic soccer balls. For the latter, proposed by Keith Henderson, shapes are given with vertices on a hyperboloid of one sheet. Also, soccer balls can be stacked in DNA-like spirals, which can be executed with Zome tool---an inspiration for an artwork in countries with soccer in their genes?
