Hexnet Hexagonal Tag Feed: polytopes A feed of tagged nodes. https://hexnet.org/blog An Introduction to Hexagonal Geometry <p><img src='/files/images/hexnet/p-6.png' title='Simple hexagon' alt='Simple hexagon' class='image-right'/> The following is a brief survey of some elemental properties of hexagons, and why they might be useful. It is not intended to be a comprehensive treatment of the subject. My specific concern here is with the mathematical properties of hexagons, and, to an extent, their role in the natural world. I have avoided discussing hexagons as they pertain to human culture, religion, history, and other "local" concerns, though there are many fascinating instances of hexagonality and sixness in these areas, and they will no doubt be treated more fully elsewhere at another time. </p> Fri, 16 Apr 2010 22:03:55 +0000 https://hexnet.org/content/hexagonal-geometry https://hexnet.org/content/hexagonal-geometry
