Tessellation of the Sphere

There are 5 non-degenerate regular tessellations of the sphere (S^2). They can be obtained by projecting the five regular Platonic polyhedra onto the sphere. The animated gif illustrates the tessellation of projection of the dodecahedron onto the sphere.

    That looks nice, it would be cool if you posted Mathematica notebooks for your visualizations!

    Thank you Yaroslav. As I expressed in the post ‘Novice’ and as you may directly attest with respect to the notebook I sent, I am not experienced in writing efficient code. However, I take your advice that sharing is also an opportunity to learn, improve and refine (as I have done by looking at your blog and notebooks).

    In future, when I better understand WordPress and after editing the notebook (i.e. it will be stimulus to make better than impulsive coding), I will put links to notebooks.
