Penteract


Penteract

In five dimensional geometry, a penteract is a name for a five dimensional hypercube with 32 vertices, 80 edges, 80 square faces, 40 cubic cells, and 10 tesseract hypercells.

The name "penteract" is derived from combining the name tesseract (the "4-cube") with "pente" for five (dimensions) in Greek.

It can also be called a regular deca-5-tope or decateron, being made of 10 regular facets.

It is a part of an infinite family of polytopes, called hypercubes. The dual of a penteract can be called a pentacross, of the infinite family of cross-polytopes.

Applying an "alternation" operation, deleting alternating vertices of the penteract, creates another uniform polytope, called a demipenteract, which is also part of an infinite family called the demihypercubes.

Cartesian coordinates

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a penteract centered at the origin and edge length 2 are: (±1,±1,±1,±1,±1)while the interior of the same consists of all points (x0, x1, x2, x3, x4) with -1 < xi < 1.
