Category B: Antiduoprisms


Antiduoprisms (also called antiprism prisms (or appips for short)) are the prisms of the antiprisms - this category has an infinite size, here we will list all of them up to the decagonal ones. Their verfs are pyramids of trapezoids or crossed trapezoids. As N approaches infinity, the N antiprism prism (or N appip) approaches a disk. There's also a group of polychora called duoantiprisms, but only the 2,2-dap and the 5,5/3-dap are uniform, these are hex (from cat. 1) and gudap (from cat. 20).
