A deltahedron is a polyhedron whose faces are equilateral triangles. It is well-known that there are exactly eight convex deltahedra, and it is easy to find out that this was first proved by Freudenthal and ven der Waerden in 1947.
Unfortunately, the paper is in a rather obscure journal , and also is written in Dutch. (Freudenthal, H; van der Waerden, B. L. (1947), "Over een bewering van Euclides ("On an Assertion of Euclid")", Simon Stevin 25: 115–128). I was not able to obtain this article. I have spent a lot of time searching elsewhere for proofs. Most books and papers that I looked at that discussed the matter just referred back to the Freudenthal-van der Waerden paper. The only proof I found was quite ad-hoc and also unpersuasive: it depended on a lot of rather handwavy assertions about the geometric form of a deltahedron that I found not at all obvious.
If you have seen the Freudenthal-van der Waerden proof, how does it go? If you have not, but you have an idea for how to prove this, I would be glad to see that too.
