This well-illustrated book-in color throughout-presents a thorough introduction to the mathematics of Buckminster Fuller's
invention of the geodesic dome, which paved the way for a flood of practical applications as diverse as weather forecasting
and fish farms. The author explains the principles of spherical design and the three main categories of subdivision based
on geometric solids (polyhedra). He illustrates how basic and advanced CAD techniques apply to spherical subdivision and covers
modern applications in product design, engineering, science, games, and sports balls.
