In geometry, a demihepteract or 7-demicube is a uniform 7-polytope, constructed from the 7-hypercube (hepteract) with alternated vertices removed. 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 HM7 for a 7-dimensional half measure polytope.

Coxeter named this polytope as 141 from its Coxeter diagram, with a ring on one of the 1-length branches, CDel node 1.pngCDel 3.pngCDel node.pngCDel split1.pngCDel nodes.pngCDel 3a.pngCDel nodea.pngCDel 3a.pngCDel nodea.pngCDel 3a.pngCDel nodea.png and Schläfli symbol or {3,34,1}.

Cartesian coordinatesEdit

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a demihepteract centered at the origin are alternate halves of the hepteract:

(±1,±1,±1,±1,±1,±1,±1)

with an odd number of plus signs.

As a configurationEdit

This configuration matrix represents the 7-demicube. The rows and columns correspond to vertices, edges, faces, cells, 4-faces, 5-faces and 6-faces. The diagonal numbers say how many of each element occur in the whole 7-demicube. The nondiagonal numbers say how many of the column's element occur in or at the row's element.[1][2]

The diagonal f-vector numbers are derived through the Wythoff construction, dividing the full group order of a subgroup order by removing one mirror at a time.[3]
