Symmetries of Canonical Self-Dual Polyhedra

To produce the table below, all 3-connected self-dual planar simple graphs with up to 16 vertices were generated using the plantri software developed by Gunnar Brinkmann and Brendan McKay. From each graph, a canonical polyhedron was produced and its symmetry determined. A self-dual polyhedron has the same number of faces as vertices, so the table shows the counts of all canonical self-dual polyhedra with up to 16 faces, cross tabulated by symmetry type and number of faces. Many of the counts can be clicked to show representative polyhedra.

The following table shows the counts of all canonical self-dual polyhedra with up to 16 faces that have symmetry type other than C1, cross tabulated by number of different edge lengths and number of faces.
