Duality is a symmetric relationship between pairs of regular maps of the same genus. Every regular map has a dual. In some cases its dual is itself; it is then described as "self-dual".If a regular map is described by
This relationship is symmetric: if A is the dual of B, then B is the dual of A.
For example, the dual of the cube is the octahedron. A regular map can be self-dual: an example is the tetrahedron.
If you have a regular map and want to construct its dual,
Dual polyhedra are so called because they occcur in pairs, each having the same relationship to the other. The term extends naturally ro regular maps.
