Midpoint Augmentation

Midpoint augmentation, a term introduced here, is a variant of conventional augmentation in which each facial polygon is replaced by a triangular polygon joining vertices with the neighboring edge midpoints, and then constructing a pyramid with the base determined by the face's midpoints. Midpoint augmentation allows compounds of Archimedean solids and Archimedean duals to be easily constructed.
