A funk prism, also known as an n-gonal funk prism, is an isochoric polychoron with 3n – 2 sides. More specifically, they are a subset of the gyrochora, and are equal to the (3n – 2)-n gyrochora. The cell of an n-gonal funk prism contains 2 isosceles n-gons, 2 isosceles pentagons and n – 1 kites. The dual of a funk prism is a funk tegum. As n approaches infinity, they start to resemble the 3,2-coiloid.
The term was first coined by Jonathan Bowers.
Examples[edit | edit source]
1. 7-2 gyrochoron (triangular funk prism)
2. Pentagonal duoprism (square funk prism)
3. 13-5 gyrochoron (pentagonal funk prism)
4. 16-6 gyrochoron (hexagonal funk prism)
5. 19-7 gyrochoron (heptagonal funk prism)
