Serial-sided IsogonsA serial-sided isogon or, more simply, serial isogon of size n is a polygon in which all vertex angles are equal, while the n sides have lengths that occur in consecutive order, running from length 1 to length n.
A golygon is the playful name I gave to that special case of a serial isogon in which the vertex angle is a right angle. The latter were in fact the earliest type of serial isogon to be investigated.
There are two papers: Serial Isogons of 90 Degrees here, and New Pathways in Serial Isogons here.
There is also a Wikipedia article on golygons.
Two later developments of interest are prime-sided golygons; see
and Adam Goucher's golyhedra (extension to 3 dimensions); see:
