ABSTRACT
The article presents the mathematical construction of surfaces. It notes that the role of such construction can only be proven through the introduction of an invariant theory. It mentions notes that the primary goal of the invariant theory is to understand the structure of an invariant ring. As with Platonic solids, it states that they are considered as vertex-transitive polyhedra and that their symmetry group acts transitively on the set of vertices.

    The article focuses on geometric magic squares. It defines magic square as a square array of numbers that were arranged so that their sum taken in any row, any column, or diagonally is the same. Meanwhile, it explores the differences of one-dimensional (1-D), two-dimensional (2-D), and...

    It is established that one of the 12 Kepler nets ( R, 3366 + 3636) belongs to Krötenheerdt nets. However, the number of Kepler nets remains 12, because one of them ( L, 33336) is enantiomorphic. Along with 20 Krötenheerdt nets, there may be many other polytypes which enter infinite...

    Since Grünbaum and Shephard's investigation of self-intersection-free polyhedra with positive genus and vertex-transitive symmetry in 1984, the question of complete classification of such objects in Euclidean 3-space has been open. Due to a recent article by Gévay, Schulte, and Wills, we...

    In this paper, we study the extension of isometries between the unit spheres of normed space E and l p( p > 1). We arrive at a conclusion that any surjective isometry between the unit sphere of normed space l p( p > 1) and E can be extended to be a linear isometry on the whole space l p( p > 1)...
