Additions, Corrections or Feedback on these pages to:
- A Tensegrity Framework
- is an ordered finite collection of points in Euclidean space, called a
configuration, with certain pairs of these points, called cables
constrained not to get further apart; and certain pairs of these points, called struts
constrained not to get closer together.
- Super Stability
- of a tensegrity means that all other tensegrities with the same
underlying graph either violate one of the distance constraints or are
congruent to the given tensegrity. (The other tensegrities could be in a
different dimensional space, as well.)
- of a tensegrity means that any continuous motion of the vertices
which preserve the cable and strut conditions extends to an isometry of
the ambient space.
