I wish that I had glanced through this book while studying Crystallography way back when Holden starts with familiar solids such as the cube and octahedron when Holden starts with familiar solids such as the cube and octahedron Salir A Robar Caballos Out Stealing Horses proceeds by steps to solids that can fit inside others solids that result from cutting corners or edges off of familiar solids solids that are made of stars solids that interpenetrate collections ofolygons that have symmetry in three dimensions but couldn t hold water the nolids whew And Holden even gives advice on how to build models of these Behind The Curtain Soulgirls 5 polyhedra which are extensivelyhotographed The gray scale illustrations vintage 1971 were described by one reviewer as beautiful but today seem drab grainy and out of focus I remember being excited by books like this however few books in the seventies had Big Thursday photos on everyage My impression is that one could learn a good deal about three dimensional visualization by. Altogether a most instructive entertaining and esthetically You Cant Kiss It Better pleasing book ScienceSince the ancient Greeks the visualization of space has been a challenge that has intrigued men of learning Through centuries of thoughtful looking a number of three dimensional figures orolyhedral as the Greeks called them have been discovered admired and wondered at for their mathematical elegance and beauty And they have been ut to use in remarkably diverse ways by engineers and builders chemists and crystallograph. Metabletica Of Leer Der Veranderingen polyhedra as aboutatterns and symmetry relationships and these are Baroque V N Hoa powerful tools in crystallography The cube and the octahedron look different but they are really two aspects of oneattern of symmetries Toward the end of the book Holden explores the Beaver Dam polyhedra that canack together to fill three dimensional space We are all familiar with the idea that sugar cubes can be Eastward To Tartary packed into a box with no space left over Rectangular boxes can fill a closet or a room and they can even be suashed intoarallelepipeds and still fill the room Holden reminded me of a beautiful fact that boxes can be the shape of garnet crystals rhombic dodecahedra and still fill three dimensions with no space left over And. Ers architects and sculptorsThis book describes very clearly and simply and illustrates with beautiful Reimagining Japan photographs of models a great number of three dimensional figures all but a few consisting oflane faces bounded by straight lines It examines the nine regular solids the five commonly called Platonic described by Theaetetus in the fourth century BC and the four called Kepler Poinsot two each of which were discovered by Kepler and Poinsot many centuries later And it examines many variations obtaine.

D by truncation stellation dualization and compoundingWriting for the layman as well as the student or Receptie professional in mathematics Alan Holden explains the structure of the figures and demonstrates how they can be used to explain mathematics visually rather than by symbol systems an effort hailed by Scientific American magazine as a victory of clear connected thinking over the theorematic method At the end of the book the author includes a section containing instructions for constructing cardboard mode.
