Authors: Hidetoshi Nonaka


This paper presents an interactive modeling system of polyhedra using the isomorphic graphs. Especially, Conway polyhedron notation is implemented. The notation can be observed as interactive animation.

Keywords: Visualization, Conway polyhedron notation, Polyhedral graph
