Truncated Icosahedral Graph


The truncated icosahedral graph is the cubic Archimedean graph on 60 nodes and 90 edges that is the skeleton of the truncated icosahedron. It is sometimes known as the buckminsterfullerene graph (Godsil and Royle 2001, p. 211). A number of embeddings are shown above. It is implemented in the Wolfram Language as GraphData["TruncatedIcosahedralGraph"].

It has graph spectrum


It is Hamiltonian with 2180 Hamiltonian cycles. It has a total of 16 distinct LCF notations (two of length three, three of length two, and 11 of length 1), illustrated above.
