• ## Polyhedron - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyhedron In geometry, a polyhedron (plural polyhedra or polyhedrons) is a three-dimensional shape with flat polygonal faces, straight edges and sharp corners or vertices.The word polyhedron comes from the Classical Greek πολύεδρον, as poly-(stem of πολύς, "many") + -hedron (form of ἕδρα, "base" or "seat").. A convex polyhedron is the convex hull of finitely many points, not all on ...

mathworld.wolfram.com/Polyhedron.html Polyhedron. The word polyhedron has slightly different meanings in geometry and algebraic geometry.In geometry, a polyhedron is simply a three-dimensional solid which consists of a collection of polygons, usually joined at their edges.The word derives from the Greek poly (many) plus the Indo-European hedron (seat). A polyhedron is the three-dimensional version of the more general polytope (in ...
