Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration colors the faces of the small rhombicosidodecahedron to show the subgroups of the octahedral rotational group. Faces that are e.g. blue land on another blue face when one of the group transformations is applied.
