Stewart provides a study of "quasi-convex, aplanar, tunnelled, orientable polyhedra having regular faces with disjoint interiors". To classify as a "Stewart Toroid" a polyhedron ("P") must fulfil the. Stewart explored these in Adventures Among the Toroids.

In that book he explored polyhedra with non-intersecting regular faces and genus greater than zero (i.e. with holes), and proposed five criteria to help narrow the search. His preference was for polyhedra where each edge of the convex hull was also an edge of the polyhedron itself.

Page 9 - MORTE D'ARTHUR. So all day long the noise of battle roll'd Among the mountains by the winter sea; Until King Arthur's table, man by man, Had fallen in Lyonnesse about their Lord, King Arthur: then, because his wound was deep, The bold Sir Bedivere uplifted him, Sir Bedivere the last of all his knights, And bore him to a chapel nigh the field, A broken chancel with a broken cross, That.

In he published a book, Adventures among the toroids. A study of orientable polyhedra with regular faces, in which he discussed what are now called Stewart toroids.

The book was handwritten in calligraphy with many formulas and illustrations. I heartily recommend Bonnie Madison Stewart's beautiful book, Adventures Among the Toroids, listed in the references. It is full of interesting examples which go way beyond these.

Two famous toroidal polyhedra (not made of regular polygons) are: The Csaszar polyhedron, which has 7 vertices and 14 triangular faces. Every pair of vertices is. A Stewart toroid is a polygon with a hole through it that meets some or all of the criteria specified by Bonnie Madison Stewart in his book Adventures Among the criteria are as follows: all faces must be regular; faces that meet mustn't lie in the same plane; the polygon must be quasi-convex; the hole through the polygon must change its genus; and, the faces aren't allowed.

As with all true Stewart Toroids, the faces are all regular and do not intersect each other. There are 20 hexagons, 60 pentagons, 60 squares and equilateral triangles for a total of faces.

Stewart mentioned this one in his book Adventures Among the Toroids, but didn't show a picture. New Adventures - $ New Adventures Among The Toroids Bm Stewart 2nd Ed Polyhedra Geometry Book.

A restricted class of Stewart toroids, also defined by Stewart, are the quasi-convex toroidal polyhedra. These are Stewart toroids that include all of the edges of their convex hulls. For such a polyhedron, each face of the convex hull either lies on the surface of the toroid, or is a polygon all of whose edges lie on the surface of the toroid.

This is an example of the regular faced toroidal Polyhedra that Bonnie Stewart describes in his book "Adventures Among the Toroids." The hole is a zig-zag hole. You cannot see directly through it.

Way way back, before there was a Mathematrec, on my other blog I posted about a book titled Adventures Among the Toroids: a study of Quasi-Convex, Aplanar. In B.M. Stewart's book Adventures Among the Toroids, toroidal shapes of many sorts are made.

One of them is the ring of 8 octahedra, with 48 faces. The toroid is made with a single polygon -- the equilateral triangle.
