Labeling a Cuboctahedron

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 12:01 PM

The above arrangement of graphic images on  cube faces is purely
decorative and static, and of  little mathematical interest. 

(A less static, but structurally chaotic, artifact might be made by
pasting the above 24 graphic images in the "Cosets in S4" picture
above onto the 24 faces of a 2x2x2 Rubik cube. This suggests the
reflection below on the poet Wallace Stevens, whose "Connoisseur
of Chaos" first appeared on page 90 of Twentieth Century Verse ,
Numbers 12-13, October 1938.)

If mathematically interesting  permutations of the graphic images
are to be done, the images should be imagined as situated on 
parallel  planes, as in the permutahedron below —

IMAGE- 'Permutahedron of Opposites'-- 24 graphic patterns arranged in space as 12 pairs of opposites
