Bigyrate Diminished Rhombicosidodecahedron


The bigyrate diminished rhombicosidodecahedron is a convex equilateral solid that is Johnson solid J_(79).

The unit bigyrate diminished rhombicosidodecahedron has volume


and Dehn invariant


where the first expression uses the basis of Conway et al. (1999). It can be dissected into the diminished rhombicosidodecahedron, metagyrate diminished rhombicosidodecahedron, and paragyrate diminished rhombicosidodecahedron, from which it differs only by the relative positions of the two removed cupolas.
