The Uniform Polyhedron $U_{74}$, also called the Great Inverted Retrosnub Icosidodecahedron, whose Dual is the Great Pentagrammic Hexecontahedron. It has Wythoff Symbol $\vert\,2\,{\textstyle{3\over 2}}\,{\textstyle{5\over 3}}$. Its faces are $80\{3\}+12\{{\textstyle{5\over 2}}\}$. For unit edge length, it has Circumradius

R={\textstyle{1\over 2}}\sqrt{2-x\over 1-x}\approx 0.5800015,

where $x$ is the smaller Negative root of


with $\phi$ the Golden Mean.
