networkx.generators.small.truncated_tetrahedron_graph

truncated_tetrahedron_graph(create_using=None)[source]

Returns the skeleton of the truncated Platonic tetrahedron.

The truncated tetrahedron is an Archimedean solid with 4 regular hexagonal faces, 4 equilateral triangle faces, 12 nodes and 18 edges. It can be constructed by truncating all 4 vertices of a regular tetrahedron at one third of the original edge length [1].

Parameters
create_usingNetworkX graph constructor, optional (default=nx.Graph)

Graph type to create. If graph instance, then cleared before populated.

Returns
