Geometric Models-Regular-Faced Convex Polyhedra -- Johnson Solids

Johnson Solids

Besides the regular and semiregular solids, there are just ninety-two other convex polyhedra with regular faces. In 1966, the American mathematician Norman W. Johnson, a student of H.S.M. Coxeter at the University of Toronto in Canada, enumerated them. These polyhedra are sometimes called the Johnson solids. In 1969, the Russian Viktor A. Zalgaller offered a computer-based computational proof that Johnson had completed the enumeration of convex polyhedra with regular faces.
