Since Plato's work, two other classes of equilateral convex polyhedra, as the collective of these shapes are called Archimedean solids (including truncated icosahedron) and Kepler solids (including rhombic polyhedra).
Eight papers cover filter banks and frames in the discrete periodic case; Newton polyhedra, asymptotics of volumes, and asymptotics of exponential integrals; approximation methods for unstable manifolds of equilibrium points of autonomous systems; the Steklov problems in symmetric domains with infinitely extended boundary; the spectrum of Steklov problems in peak-shaped domains; generalization of the Cwikel estimate for integral operators; asymptotic behavior of probabilities of moderate deviations; and the history of the study of convex polyhedra with regular faces and faces composed of regular ones.
