    The Mathematica programs to compute and render the polyhedra are included on the CD-ROM that comes with The Mathematica Programmer II. The book contains also high-resolution color images of all uniform polyhedra. Follow the link to the book's home page for more information and direct ordering in association with Graphic Resources. A polyhedron is a solid with flat faces. (from Greek poly- meaning "many" and -hedron meaning "face"). Each face is a polygon (a flat shape with straight sides). Examples of Polyhedra: Its faces are all squares. Triangular Prism. Its faces are triangles. What faces does it have? So no curved surfaces: cones, spheres and cylinders are not.
