German term or phrase: Theorie der Polyeder
A preoccupation of the mathematician Ernst Steinitz.

Could someone help with the correct term in English? Google seems unhelpful.

Many thanks.

the theory of polyhedra
Explanation:
Steinitz also made fundamental contributions to the theory of polyhedra: Steinitz's theorem for polyhedra is that the 1-skeletons of convex polyhedra are exactly the 3-connected planar graphs. His work in this area was published posthumously as a 1934 book, Vorlesungen über die Theorie der Polyeder unter Einschluss der Elemente der Topologie, by Hans Rademacher.
