Properties convex

In geometry, a demienneract or 9-demicube is a uniform 9-polytope, constructed from the 9-cube, with alternated vertices truncated. It is part of a dimensionally infinite family of uniform polytopes called demihypercubes.

E. L. Elte identified it in 1912 as a semiregular polytope, labeling it as HM9 for a 9-dimensional half measure polytope.

Coxeter named this polytope as 161 from its Coxeter diagram, with a ring on one of the 1-length branches, and Schläfli symbol or {3,36,1}.

Cartesian coordinates

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a demienneract centered at the origin are alternate halves of the enneract:


with an odd number of plus signs.
