The name hexateron is derived from hexa- for having six facets and teron (with ter- being a corruption of tetra- ) for having four-dimensional facets. By Jonathan Bowers, a hexateron is given the acronym HIX. REGULAR HEXATERON CARTESIAN COORDINATES The hexateron can be constructed from a 5-cell by adding a 6th vertex such that it is equidistant from all the other vertices of the 5-cell. |
