Spherical half-designs of high order

Daniel Hughes and Shayne Waldron

Vol. 13 (2020), No. 2, 193–203
Abstract

We give some explicit examples of putatively optimal spherical half-designs, i.e., ones for which there is numerical evidence that they are of minimal size. These include a 16-point weighted spherical half-design of order 8 for 3 based on the pentakis dodecahedron. This gives rise to a 32-point weighted spherical 9-design for the sphere.
