Schematic Drawings of the Polychora

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Regular 4-dimensional polychora are often shown as still images on a planar medium. This paper deals with the possibility of representing the edge-graphs of the polychora with schematic drawings instead of geometrically accurate projections. A set of simple visual principles produces symmetric and visually appealing illustrations of the 5-cell, the hypercube and the 16-cell.
