Baiocchi Figures for Besźel Polycubes
A Baiocchi figure is a figure
formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal
symmetry for the polyform's class.
For polycubes, that means cubic symmetry.
Baiocchi proposed the idea in January 2008.
Baiocchi figures first appeared in Erich Friedman's
Math Magic for that month.
A Besźel Polycube is a polycube whose cells all have
at least two even coordinates.
Below are minimal known Baiocchi figures for Besźel Polycubes
of orders 1 through 5.
