A130896 For D_n type groups as polyhedra that are pyramid-like: {F,V,E,dimension}->{2*n+1,2*n+1,2*n,(2*n+1)*((2*n+1)-1)/2} such that Euler's equation is true: V=E-F+2. 0

COMMENTS

This idea comes from the Octahedron being truncated by one vertex to give a pyramid. In this case the n=1 is not a 3d polyhedron, but the rest are very simple F=E figures. Adding one vertex below the plane of the major polygon gives an D_nh type point group ( D_n like figures A131498): these figures are Point groups C_nv.
