The digonal prism is a prism with a digon as the base. Because of this, it is degenerate in normal Euclidean space but in some geometries (such as spherical geometry) it can exist properly.

It has the Schläfli symbol $ \{ \} \times \{ 2\} $, since it is the product of a line segment and a digon. It also has the Schläfli symbol $ t\{2,2\} $, since it is a truncated Digonal Dihedron and a truncated Digonal Hosohedron (both of which are in fact the same shape).

Hypervolumes

  • vertex count = $ 4 $
  • edge length = $ 2l $
  • surface area = $ 2{l}^{2} $
  • surcell volume = $ 0{l}^{3} $
