Equiangular polygon
In Euclidean geometry, an equiangular polygon is a polygon whose vertex angles are equal. If the lengths of the sides are also equal (that is, if it is also equilateral) then it is a regular polygon.

Net (polyhedron)
In geometry, a net of a polyhedron is an arrangement of non-overlapping edge-joined polygons in the plane which can be folded (along edges) to become the faces of the polyhedron. Polyhedral nets are a
Robbins pentagon
In geometry, a Robbins pentagon is a cyclic pentagon whose side lengths and area are all rational numbers.
Nef polygon
In mathematics Nef polygons and Nef polyhedra are the sets of polygons and polyhedra which can be obtained from a finite set of halfplanes (halfspaces) by Boolean operations of set intersection and se
Convex polygon
In geometry, a convex polygon is a polygon that is the boundary of a convex set. This means that the line segment between two points of the polygon is contained in the union of the interior and the bo
Infinite skew polygon
In geometry, an infinite skew polygon or skew apeirogon is an infinite 2-polytope with vertices that are not all colinear. Infinite zig-zag skew polygons are 2-dimensional infinite skew polygons with
In geometry, a planigon is a convex polygon that can fill the plane with only copies of itself (isotopic to the fundamental units of monohedral tessellations). In the Euclidean plane there are 3 regul
In Euclidean geometry, a spirolateral is a polygon created by a sequence of fixed vertex internal angles and sequential edge lengths 1,2,3,…,n which repeat until the figure closes. The number of repea
Mayo-Smith pyramid
A Mayo-Smith pyramid is a triangle divided into a sequence of isosceles trapezoids configured such that the outer perimeter maintains the shape of a triangle with each additional element. A Mayo-Smith
Polygram (geometry)
In geometry, a generalized polygon can be called a polygram, and named specifically by its number of sides. All polygons are polygrams, but can also include disconnected sets of edges, called a compou
Crossed polygon
A crossed polygon is a polygon in the plane with a turning number or density of zero, with the appearance of a figure 8, infinity symbol, or lemniscate curve. Crossed polygons are related to star poly
Rectilinear polygon
A rectilinear polygon is a polygon all of whose sides meet at right angles. Thus the interior angle at each vertex is either 90° or 270°. Rectilinear polygons are a special case of isothetic polygons.
Complex polygon
The term complex polygon can mean two different things: * In geometry, a polygon in the unitary plane, which has two complex dimensions. * In computer graphics, a polygon whose boundary is not simpl
In Euclidean plane geometry, a pseudotriangle (pseudo-triangle) is the simply connected subset of the plane that lies between any three mutually tangent convex sets. A pseudotriangulation (pseudo-tria
Five-pointed star
A five-pointed star (☆), geometrically an equilateral concave decagon, is a common ideogram in modern culture.Comparatively rare in classical heraldry, it was notably introduced for the flag of the Un
Tangential polygon
In Euclidean geometry, a tangential polygon, also known as a circumscribed polygon, is a convex polygon that contains an inscribed circle (also called an incircle). This is a circle that is tangent to
Largest small octagon
The largest small octagon is the octagon that has the largest area among all convex octagons with unit diameter. The diameter of a polygon is the length of the longest segment joining two of its verti
Bicentric polygon
In geometry, a bicentric polygon is a tangential polygon (a polygon all of whose sides are tangent to an inner incircle) which is also cyclic — that is, inscribed in an outer circle that passes throug
Reinhardt polygon
In geometry, a Reinhardt polygon is an equilateral polygon inscribed in a Reuleaux polygon. As in the regular polygons, each vertex of a Reinhardt polygon participates in at least one defining pair of
Simple polygon
In geometry, a simple polygon /ˈpɒlɪɡɒn/ is a polygon that does not intersect itself and has no holes. That is, it is a flat shape consisting of straight, non-intersecting line segments or "sides" tha
Monotone polygon
In geometry, a polygon P in the plane is called monotone with respect to a straight line L, if every line orthogonal to L intersects the boundary of P at most twice. Similarly, a polygonal chain C is
Skew polygon
In geometry, a skew polygon is a polygon whose vertices are not all coplanar. Skew polygons must have at least four vertices. The interior surface (or area) of such a polygon is not uniquely defined.
Isothetic polygon
An isothetic polygon is a polygon whose alternate sides belong to two parametric families of straight lines which are pencils of lines with centers at two points (possibly the point at infinity). The

In geometry, an equilateral polygon is a polygon which has all sides of the same length. Except in the triangle case, an equilateral polygon does not need to also be equiangular (have all angles equal

In geometry, the biggest little polygon for a number n is the n-sided polygon that has diameter one (that is, every two of its points are within unit distance of each other) and that has the largest a
Affine-regular polygon
In geometry, an affine-regular polygon or affinely regular polygon is a polygon that is related to a regular polygon by an affine transformation. Affine transformations include translations, uniform a
