Dear all, I am trying to divide a sphere into equal parts. By equal part I mean, so that into parts, such that the area subtended by every solid angle is equal. Basically its a sphere with unit radius and I want to discretize the \theta and \phi such that I divide the sphere as explained above.
Can someone please help me on this? I would be highly interested in discussing this problem further.
Regards Abhi...

If there are no restrictions on how to divide the sphere, then you can slice it like an orange.

The sphere consists of graphic primitives, smallest of which – a triangle. In 3D modeling it use for surface creation. Begin for example with octahedrona. Then to icosahedron. And further reducing the size of a triangle. Discretize level define for itself.
