Archimedean graph

Summary

In the mathematical field of graph theory, an Archimedean graph is a graph that forms the skeleton of one of the Archimedean solids. There are 13 Archimedean graphs, and all of them are regular, polyhedral (and therefore by necessity also 3-vertex-connected planar graphs), and also Hamiltonian graphs.[1]

Along with the 13, the set of infinite prism graphs and antiprism graphs can also be considered Archimedean graphs.[2]
