Abstract:1. Historical remarks. In this paper we extend some well-known extremum properties of the regular polygons to the regular polyhedra. We start by mentioning some known results in this direction.First, let us briefly consider the problem which has received the greatest attention among all the extremum problems for polyhedra. It is the determination of the polyhedron of greatest volume F of a class of polyhedra of equal surface areas F, i.e., the isepiphan problem.
