The polyhedron thread - building some polyhedra and defining a regular polyhedron; 6. This easy-to-read 2010 book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory. All of these ideas, and more, reveal the beauty of mathematics and the interconnectedness of its various branches. This remarkable algorithm has led to interesting proofs of certain results in number theory, has been used to answer combinatorial questions involving partitions of space, and has enabled the authors to obtain the formula for the volume of a regular tetrahedron in around three steps, using nothing more complicated than basic arithmetic and the most elementary plane geometry. Using a systematic paper-folding procedure it is possible to construct a regular polygon with any number of sides. Possible loose bindings, highlighting, cocked spine or torn dust jackets. A mathematical tapestry demonstrating the beautiful unity of mathematics by peter hilton jean pedersen is readily available for downloading and read.
