Abstract

A uniform polyhedron has equivalent vertices and regular polygonal faces. An established set of 77 Wythoff symbols effectively describes the dynamic kaleidoscopic constructions of uniform polyhedra. The main combinatorial and metrical quantities of uniform polyhedra and their duals are presented as closed-form expressions derived from the Wythoff symbols.
