8-polytopes | Regular tessellations | Honeycombs (geometry)

The 7-cubic honeycomb or hepteractic honeycomb is the only regular space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb) in Euclidean 7-space. It is analogous to the square tiling of the plane and to the cubic honeycomb of 3-space. There are many different Wythoff constructions of this honeycomb. The most symmetric form is regular, with Schläfli symbol {4,35,4}. Another form has two alternating 7-cube facets (like a checkerboard) with Schläfli symbol {4,34,31,1}. The lowest symmetry Wythoff construction has 128 types of facets around each vertex and a prismatic product Schläfli symbol {∞}7. (Wikipedia).

Reaching for Infinity Through Honeycombs – Roice Nelson

Pick any three integers larger than 2. We describe how to understand and draw a picture of a corresponding kaleidoscopic {p,q,r} honeycomb, up to and including {∞,∞,∞}.

How to Construct a Dodecahedron

How the greeks constructed the Dodecahedron. Euclids Elements Book 13, Proposition 17. In geometry, a dodecahedron is any polyhedron with twelve flat faces. The most familiar dodecahedron is the regular dodecahedron with regular pentagons as faces, which is a Platonic solid. A regular dode

Three space-filling shapes hiding in the structure of diamond

Diamond is an arrangement of carbon atoms called the diamond cubic structure. As well as the cubes there are two other space-filling shapes that are found within it. In the unit cell I say "three more inside". It should of course be "four more inside". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamo

Canonical structures inside the Platonic solids III | Universal Hyperbolic Geometry 51

The dodecahedron is surely one of the truly great mathematical objects---revered by the ancient Greeks, Kepler, and many mathematicians since. Its symmetries are particularly rich, and in this video we look at how to see the five-fold and six-fold symmetries of this object via internal str

Why do Bees build Hexagons? Honeycomb Conjecture explained by Thomas Hales

Mathematician Thomas Hales explains the Honeycomb Conjecture in the context of bees. Hales proved that the hexagon tiling (hexagonal honeycomb) is the most efficient way to maximise area whilst minimising perimeter. Interview with Oxford Mathematician Dr Tom Crawford. Produced by Tom Roc
