Following is a thesis on geodesic domes written in 2010 by Taralyn Fender who teaches math at a University.  The title of her thesis: Are Geodesic Dome Homes More Energy Efficient and Wind Resistant Because They Resemble a Hemisphere?

The Conclusion of her thesis: Simulations and observations from hurricane disaster scenes do suggest that the geodesic dome structures suffer far less destruction than rectilinear structures. The hypothesis is that geodesic domes are more energy efficient and more wind resistant because they more closely resemble a hemisphere.
