This is an oldie, a *compound* of *2 irregular dodecahedra*.
Please be well & happy, everybody!

Here is the figure of which Gerard Westendorp had spoken in a comment, namely *6 congruent tetrahedra* glued between themselves *around a space diagonal* of the cube. They are, alternating, of the 2 enantiomorphic variants of a tetrahedron with all faces right trigs, 2 (2, 2, 2sqrt(2))(area = 2) & 2 (2, 2sqrt(2),2sqrt(3))(area 2sqrt(2)); the 2 variants (laevo & dextro) are of 2 different colors.
Please be happy & enjoy being alive!

It's known that a cube can be made of 5 tetrahedra: *1 regular tetrahedron* at the center, plus *4 trirectangular tetrahedra* (*trt*) glued to the 4 faces of the former.
If the edge of the cube be 2, the edges of the *regular tetrahedron* (in the interior) will have length = 2.sqrt(2) & its volume will be 8/3. Now, the *trt* has the same base as a face of the reg. tetrahedron & 1/2 its altitude, so its volume is 4/3. Together:
8/3 (reg. tetrah.) + 4. 4/3 (trt's)= 24/3 = 8 (volume of the cube)

This is *Nordstrand*'s *weird quartic* surface. (Repost of June 4, 2016)

z= 0 > 25(x^2+y^2) +50xy -4=0 > y= -25x +-10.

4th solid of the infinite family which begins with 15, 65, 175 & now 369 soccerballs. Each solid, with the form of a *rhombic dodecahedron*, has all the former ones inscribed as Russian dolls. The formula for the number of C60 is N= a.x^3 + b.x^2 + c*x + d.
The final formulae are:
N= 4.x^3 + 6.x^2 + 4.x + 1= (2.x+1)(2.x^2 + 2.x +1) & the genus:
g= 12. x^3 + 6.x^2 = 6.x^2(2.x+1)
voila! I thank you all for reading this and please be happy you all! New subject in next post...

Another C80 [V= 80, F= 42, E= 120] different from those both that I posted here 2 weeks ago; but this one has one nice property: if 12 such are glued face-to-face such that every one is surrounded by 5 others maintaining the Ih maximal symmetry, the structure closes up on itself and forms the elegant complex you can see [V= 780, F= 444, E= 1260; genus: g= 19]; *symmetry* is *Ih* always; please be happy and enjoy this beautiful [Sunday]!..

Want a nice solid? here it is a *propello truncated icosahedron*, this one without the unhappy solitary 5-gons of the *exp-join-6propello-h12*; face vector: [V= 240, F= 212, E= 450]; symmetry *I* (*icosahedral chiral*); faces (decreasing area): 20 6-gons (brown);12 5-gons (red); 60 4-gons (dk pink)+ 60 4-gons (lt-pink)+ 60 4-gons (blue); that's all, folks!
please be happy everybody & enjoy [autumn] while cold in not too much!

The following pic was publish for the 1st time in the *Google-plus* Mathematics community in
Nov 19, 2015. Please enjoy & be happy, everybody!

Feuerbach's theorem (bis)

The so-called *9-point circle* is, according to *Feuerbach's theorem*, tangent to the *inscribed circle* (*10th point*) & to the *3 escribed circles* of the triangle, so it should be called the 13-point circle, at the very least.. (lol) [ ]

*Feuerbach's theorem*: The middle points of the sides of a triangle, the feet of the altitudes & the points at mid-distance from the orthocenter & the vertices are on a circle whose radius is 1/2 of the one of the circumscribed circle & whose center is the point at mid-distance from the orthocenter & the center of the circumcircle. And this circle is tangent to the inscribed circle & to the 3 escribed circles of the triangle.

Just for your viewing pleasure, here is one more pic of the famous *Boy's surface*, the so-called variant of *Bryant-Kusner*
This *Boy* was a German pupil of Hilbert.

An *isohedral* (or *equifaced*) toroidal polyhedron;
faces are 24 congruent isosceles triangles
[V=12, F=24, E=36; genus: g= 1]
symmetry *D3d* (*3-fold dihedral* w. vertical reflection)

This is the exact same polyhedron that I posted here half an hour ago, just with a number of *stroke-lines*, which are NOT *edges* of the polyhedron shown (they are mainly (though not always) lines where meet two faces of the same color which are not in the same plane). Edges are always *full white lines*.
Again, please be happy, everyone & enjoy being alive!

The pic today is of a handsome solid by the not easy name of *rhombic diskaiheptacontahedron* (72 faces, all *rhombi* of 2 kinds, 18 narrow ones (dark brown) & 54 wide ones (light brown); the face vector of the 'animal' is [V=74, F=72, E=144] and *symmetry* is *3-fold dihedral* with *vertical reflection* - *D3d* with Rv.
Please be happy you all & enjoy being alive!

Enjoy this pic of the "development" (or "net") in 3 dimensions of a 4-dimensional hypersolid, namely a 'gyro-113-2' or 'gyro-113-56' in "Jonathan Bowers' notation" [it would make a 4-dim fair dye with no less than 113 cells
please be well you all!..

A very erotic & sensual animation copied from the internet a few days ago. Enjoy & be happy, everyone!
