Banchoff's response to Jeremy's Ch. 5 comments

Duality is great--I agree. I have a whole book on dual models that I'm sure you will be interested in seeing, and even building or designing for a computer program?

For four-dimensional polyhedral models, there is not yet a good book, at least as visual as some of the best 3d things. We do want to keep thinking about designing one.

The linguists don't seem to be of much help when it comes to finding the proper prefix for a 600-tope. At best the Greek term for 600 will be less familiar than the "penta" that you like. Any suggestions?
