Uniform polyhedron compound


Uniform polyhedron compound

A uniform polyhedron compound is a polyhedral compound whose constituents are identical (although possibly enantiomorphous) uniform polyhedra, in an arrangement that is also uniform: the symmetry group of the compound acts transitively on the compound's vertices.

The uniform polyhedron compounds were first enumerated by John Skilling in 1976, with a proof that the enumeration is complete. The following table lists them according to his numbering.
