In geometry, a 10-orthoplex or 10-cross polytope, is a regular 10-polytope with 20 vertices, 180 edges, 960 triangle faces, 3360 octahedron cells, 8064 5-cells 4-faces, 13440 5-faces, 15360 6-faces, 11520 7-faces, 5120 8-faces, and 1024 9-faces.

It has two constructed forms, the first being regular with Schläfli symbol {38,4}, and the second with alternately labeled (checker-boarded) facets, with Schläfli symbol {37,31,1} or Coxeter symbol 711.

It is one of an infinite family of polytopes, called cross-polytopes or orthoplexes. The dual polytope is the 10-hypercube or 10-cube.

Alternate names


There are two Coxeter groups associated with the 10-orthoplex, one regular, dual of the 10-cube with the C10 or [4,38] symmetry group, and a lower symmetry with two copies of 9-simplex facets, alternating, with the D10 or [37,1,1] symmetry group.

Cartesian coordinates

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a 10-orthoplex, centred at the origin are

(±1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0), (0,±1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0), (0,0,±1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0), (0,0,0,±1,0,0,0,0,0,0), (0,0,0,0,±1,0,0,0,0,0), (0,0,0,0,0,±1,0,0,0,0), (0,0,0,0,0,0,±1,0,0,0), (0,0,0,0,0,0,0,±1,0,0), (0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,±1,0), (0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,±1)

Every vertex pair is connected by an edge, except opposites.
