## Schläfli symbolA notation, devised by Ludwig Schläfli, which describes the number of edges of each polygon meeting at a vertex of a regular or semi-regular tiling or solid. For a Platonic solid, it is written { p, q}, where p is the number
of sides each face has, and q is the number of faces that touch at
each vertex. ## Related category• SOLIDS AND SURFACES | |||||
