Would anybody have information on, or pointers to the subject of
representing a sphere as a number of equidistantly spaced points on its
surface (i.e., if you can fold open the sphere without any distortions,
the points will be hexagonally "close" packed)? Specifically, I am
trying to represent the surface of a sphere as a collection of
identical equilateral triangles.
Any good ways of doing this with Mathematice?
