In 7-dimensional geometry, 132 is a uniform polytope, constructed from the E7 group.

## Contents

Its Coxeter symbol is 132, describing its bifurcating Coxeter-Dynkin diagram, with a single ring on the end of one of the 1-node sequences.

The rectified 132 is constructed by points at the mid-edges of the 132.

These polytopes are part of a family of 127 (27-1) convex uniform polytopes in 7-dimensions, made of uniform polytope facets and vertex figures, defined by all permutations of rings in this Coxeter-Dynkin diagram: .

## 1_32 polytope

This polytope can tessellate 7-dimensional space, with symbol 133, and Coxeter-Dynkin diagram, . It is the Voronoi cell of the dual E7* lattice.

## Alternate names

• Emanuel Lodewijk Elte named it V576 (for its 576 vertices) in his 1912 listing of semiregular polytopes.
• Coxeter called it 132 for its bifurcating Coxeter-Dynkin diagram, with a single ring on the end of the 1-node branch.
• Pentacontihexa-hecatonicosihexa-exon (Acronym lin) - 56-126 facetted polyexon (Jonathan Bowers)
• ## Construction

It is created by a Wythoff construction upon a set of 7 hyperplane mirrors in 7-dimensional space.

The facet information can be extracted from its Coxeter-Dynkin diagram,

Removing the node on the end of the 2-length branch leaves the 6-demicube, 131,

Removing the node on the end of the 3-length branch leaves the 122,

The vertex figure is determined by removing the ringed node and ringing the neighboring node. This makes the birectified 6-simplex, 032,

## Related polytopes and honeycombs

The 132 is third in a dimensional series of uniform polytopes and honeycombs, expressed by Coxeter as 13k series. The next figure is the Euclidean honeycomb 133 and the final is a noncompact hyperbolic honeycomb, 134.

## Rectified 1_32 polytope

The rectified 132 (also called 0321) is a rectification of the 132 polytope, creating new vertices on the center of edge of the 132. Its vertex figure is a duoprism prism, the product of a regular tetrahedra and triangle, doubled into a prism: {3,3}×{3}×{}.

## Alternate names

• Rectified pentacontihexa-hecatonicosihexa-exon for rectified 56-126 facetted polyexon (acronym rolin) (Jonathan Bowers)
• ## Construction

It is created by a Wythoff construction upon a set of 7 hyperplane mirrors in 7-dimensional space. These mirrors are represented by its Coxeter-Dynkin diagram, , and the ring represents the position of the active mirror(s).

Removing the node on the end of the 3-length branch leaves the rectified 122 polytope,

Removing the node on the end of the 2-length branch leaves the demihexeract, 131,

Removing the node on the end of the 1-length branch leaves the birectified 6-simplex,

The vertex figure is determined by removing the ringed node and ringing the neighboring node. This makes the tetrahedron-triangle duoprism prism, {3,3}×{3}×{},
