Abstract
Capsomer is a morphological subunit of virus. It was regularly arranged in an icosahedral capsid. The numbers of capsomers(N) are defined by the triangulation numbers(T). N=10T+2, T=pf~2, p=h~2+hk+k~2, where f is an integer and p is the class number, h and K are any pairs of integers without common factors. If h, k and f are known, N can be calculated.
