 # VE Primary Great Circle Data

The Vector Equilibrium (VE) (a.k.a. cuboctahedron) has 4 goups of spin axes. These are

1. 4 triangle face-center-to-face-center axes
2. 3 square face-center-to-face-center axes
3. 6 vertex-to-vertex axes
4. 12 midedge-to-mid-edge axes
for a total of 25 great circles. Each group of axes defines a different set of great circles which criss-cross the surface of the sphere and therefore the faces of the spherical VE as well. Below is an illustration showing a spherical triangle and square face pair criss-crossed with the great circle arcs. The spherical triangle in bold is the LCD spherical triangle. (More on this below.) Below I show which axis group grenerates which great circle arcs across the VE's faces. The bold arcs are generated by the associated axis group as labeled.  The surface of the spherical VE can be covered by 24 "positive" and 24 "negative" (total = 48) spherical triangles known as the VE LCD spherical triangle. This is the spherical triangle shown in bold in the illustration below. Now for the tables of the spherical VE's LCD spherical triangle angles.

All angles are given in degrees.
