In geometry, a 9-simplex is a self-dual regular 9-polytope. It has 10 vertices, 45 edges, 120 triangle faces, 210 tetrahedral cells, 252 5-cell 4-faces, 210 5-simplex 5-faces, 120 6-simplex 6-faces, 45 7-simplex 7-faces, and 10 8-simplex 8-faces. Its dihedral angle is cos−1(1/9), or approximately 83.62°.

It can also be called a decayotton, or deca-9-tope, as a 10-facetted polytope in 9-dimensions.. The name decayotton is derived from deca for ten facets in Greek and -yott (variation of oct for eight), having 8-dimensional facets, and -on.



The Cartesian coordinates of the vertices of an origin-centered regular decayotton having edge length 2 are:

\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ \sqrt{1/21},\ \sqrt{1/15},\ \sqrt{1/10},\ \sqrt{1/6},\ \sqrt{1/3},\ \pm1\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ \sqrt{1/21},\ \sqrt{1/15},\ \sqrt{1/10},\ \sqrt{1/6},\ -2\sqrt{1/3},\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ \sqrt{1/21},\ \sqrt{1/15},\ \sqrt{1/10},\ -\sqrt{3/2},\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ \sqrt{1/21},\ \sqrt{1/15},\ -2\sqrt{2/5},\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ \sqrt{1/21},\ -\sqrt{5/3},\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ \sqrt{1/28},\ -\sqrt{12/7},\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ 1/6,\ -\sqrt{7/4},\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(\sqrt{1/45},\ -4/3,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)
\left(-3\sqrt{1/5},\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0,\ 0\right)

More simply, the vertices of the 9-simplex can be positioned in 10-space as permutations of (0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1). This construction is based on facets of the 10-orthoplex.
