Oh yes, misplaced that single name. Thanx for pointing that out. (At least the used cells all where correct.)
So here - for reference - is the corrected list, now including the then missing names:

wait, this one contains x3/2x and is degenerate. Not sure what you meant to write here...

When I saw this, I first thought of digging up my old papers from 2015 that first described these, but then I realized that I would probably be doing a more exhaustive search soon, so there wasn't really any need. But before I completed that search I suddenly remembered that one of the first uniform honeycombs I discovered after making my list had the symbol x4x~x4x3*a4/3*c *b4/3*d. It may well be that this is the one I originally wrote down, but I didn't notice that it was in a different family from the second-to-last one when I put it online (both have tetrahedral diagrams).

So I guess that my plan should have x4/3x4x3/2x3*a *a~c *b4d replaced with x4x~x4x3*a4/3*c *b4/3*d. I also missed x4o3/2x~x3*b, a member of the skivcadach regiment, on my 2015 list.

Klitzing wrote:First of all: the linearisation symbol of the above symmetry group you gave as "o4o3o3o4/3*a *b3d" is wrong, as the letter "d" likewise isn't a real node, rather it is a virtaul one too, which re-reffers to the d-th so far already provided real node from the left. Accordingly it ought be prefixed by an asterisk as well. So you'd write rather "o4o3o3o4/3*a *b3*d".

Thanks, I didn't realize asterisks before virtual nodes were mandatory. I guess I haven't learned all the ins and outs of the linearization rules yet.

I don't like the idea of using "hexa-" when the hexagonal-tiling symmetry of the cell doesn't carry over into the entire pattern. In these, as in almost every other uniform honeycomb, the hexagons act like truncated triangles. So I would prefer something like "tri-", or "triati-" to reflect the o3o3o3*a symmetry, or maybe just "apeirati-" to be consistent.

I'm not entirely sure how the "x-truncated y" nomenclature emerged, or what, if anything, are the exact rules for using it, but I have a feeling these should be called apeiratitruncated dicubatic honeycomb and apeiratitruncated prismatodicubatic honeycomb. Maybe it's best to leave these ones alone for now.

As you can see, there are 4 new regiments in this list, including a lone operative and three pairs of prismatorhombates. I'm not sure whether I encountered these before -- it could be that I wrote them down on a piece of paper somewhere after I posted my September 2015 update. I also can't get rid of the feeling that some of these are actually fissary and their verfs can be cut from larger verfs in ways I haven't noticed, like how the verfs of o5/2x5x5/2o and x3o3o5/4x can be cut from sidtaxhi's verf.

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

Interesting. Can't seem to find any degenerate ones right away... Guess it just means more work on the list for you.

Would you like me to offer up possible names for the new regiment colonels here?

I'd also be interested in seeing how the technique you used would work if you started from one of the regular polychora. Maybe I'll investigate this sometime...

At first I was surprised you managed to get all symmetries in one go - but the three main convex honeycomb families (cubic, demicubic, cyclotetrahedral) are all related, so it makes sense. (That probably means if I did one for the uniform polychora, I'd have the tessics and icoics would all be in one list.)

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

I divided the honeycombs up into categories, and enumerated the typical nonprismatic regiments to the best of my knowledge. I have the new listings for the octet, gacoco, and rich regiments on an unpublished file on my computer but I'm still not 100% sure I listed them correctly so I put question marks next to the counts.

Also, a side note: o4o3x4/3x4*b is called gacoco on the incmats site, but gacoca on the OBSA list.

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

Have you looked at the laminate honeycombs?

There are beside the LPA2, LPB2, and LPC2, there are the 'stary' versions of LQA2, LQB2, and LQC2. These do not have wythoff symbols. The LQ forms have a pleated form, but still are uniform.

I think that's all of the WYthoffians. I also remember having done short names for a few of the others in smaller regiments if you're interested.

Also, there seems to be a typo in your list: rich is listed as up to 52, but srich starts at 25, which makes no sense.

Also Klitzing, on your website it says x4o3o4/3x = chon, but this isn't true. It's verf is a qo3/2oq&#q, which I think is a degenerate triangle, so that is just a infinite covered cube instead.

Thanks for that -- I was pretty sleepy when i made that list and was comparing it to my existing uniform honeycomb list. I will change this as soon as I can, but in the meantime just add 28 to all the numbers from the 4th category up.

I'll also be discussing categories 13, 14, and 15 as soon as I can. I have found a few honeycombs in those categories still not listed. For example, the triangular tiling prism has two copycats where the trats come apart into apeirogonal antiprisms (azaps); one has the azaps going parallel on each side, and the other has one set turned 60 degrees relative to the other set. I call these "apeirogonal prism hemiantiprismatic honeycomb" and "apeirogonal prism gyrohemiantiprismatic honeycomb". The other notable discovery was that you can remove half the trips from the triangular prismatic honeycomb and use triangular and square tilings to fill the gaps -- similar to chon turning into cuhsquah, as you call it. A similar thing can also be done to the trihexagonal prismatic honeycomb.

Edit:This is now fixed.

I wrote:I'm pretty sure the triangular tiling antiprism does have some regiment members besides the 3 I listed, though. I just need to figure out what they are.

I think I found two of these. Do you know sidtidap, the small ditrigonal icosidodecahedral antiprism? It has a triangular cupolaic verf and two other regiment members, didtidap and gidtidap. The verf of the triangular tiling antiprism (let's call it tratap) can be faceted in the same way, leading to one honeycomb with ditathas, octs, and azaps and another with ditathas, tets, and azaps.

EDIT: I don't have any real preferences for the names of these honeycombs, but if one of them is to be the ditatha antiprism, I'll suggest it'd be the one with tets, not octs.

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

And here is the updated list of octet regiment members.

The names and descriptions are from my latest (unpublished) list of uniform honeycombs; only the numbers (which were messy and nonconsecutive) were removed. The goal is to publish the content of regiments when it isn't immediately apparent, without having to publish a whole list of honeycombs (which might contain errors). I already checked this regiment over a year ago but I just double-checked and also checked for fissaries. I checked for fissaries by comparing my list to Jonathan Bowers' list of ditetrahedronary polychora, which means that I didn't check the honeycombs with squats in them, but it doesn't seem likely that these would be fissary. The 16th honeycomb on the list wasn't listed as having hexats in the file but I fixed this too.

Here are the 32 members of the octet regiment.

Code: Select all
`Tetrahedral-octahedral honeycomb, also known as alternated cubic honeycomb or octet. Symbol is o6'o, can also be (ooox). Cells are tets and octs. Verf is a co. This one has hemicubic honeycomb symmetry.Tetrahedral hemitriangular tiling honeycomb. Cells are tets and trats (triangular tilings). Verf is an oho. Symbol is (x(oo),o). This has hemicubic honeycomb symmetry, but is only wythoffian if it has quarter cubic honeycomb symmetry, (oooo), also known as cyclotetrahedral symmetry.Octahedral hemitriangular tiling honeycomb.

This has cyclotetrahedral symmetry and is just the last honeycomb w/ half the tets replaced by tuts.Ditetrahedronary tetrahedral cuboctahedral hemiditrigonal triangular tiling honeycomb.

Why does this one have "cubohemioctahedral" in the name, but ohoes for cells? I'm pretty sure the analogue in the gadtaxady regiment is gadtacaxady, which has qrids for cells.

polychoronlover wrote:Octahedral octahemioctahedral hemihexagonal tiling honeycomb. Cells are octs, ohoes, and hexats in compounds of three. Verf is a co w/ lightly inverted pseudo-triangles.

is this one new? (It wasn't on your last list, though its analogues in the ditetrahedronary polychora were not - I think this one corresponds to gadtacady in the gadtaxacy regiment.)

polychoronlover wrote:Ditetrahedronary distetrahedral hemihexahedral hemisquare tiling honeycomb. Cells are tets, thahs, and squats. Verf is a co w/ four of the tetrahedra replaced by cube shaped dents. This has cyclotetrahedral symmetry.

Is this one's verf the rectified thah, by any chance? It would make sense, given that the rectified thah should have triangles, squares, and bowties, which is what this one's verf has.

This list is interesting. The squat containing ones are unique, as they don't seem to have any analogues among the ditetrahedronary polychora. (I think it has to do with the fact that octet's verf hass all unit edges, while in, say, gadtaxady's verf, half the edges are shorter thena the other half.)

It might be a good idea to "group" these in a similar way to the ditetreahedronary polychora - ie: primary ((contains no tuts, co members, or squats), secondary (contains tuts, but no co members or squats), coic, ohoic, choic, tetracelli-choic (all these groups still lacking squats), and squatic).

What regiment will you post next? The only larger regiments you haven't uploaded here yet are stut cadoca (trigonal cupolivert) and rich (which should be easy enough to derive from the earlier list of gacoca members).

Yes, it does. In general, when the name says one thing, and the cell types say something else, the cell types are right.

Not really, it had been on my unpublished updated list since 2015.

Yes, the verf is the rectified thah. Unfortunately it is not hemi-Wythoffian, as 2thah consists of two different types of edges. However, there is a tetracomb with ratho as its verf, which is hemi-Whythoffian (symbol [o3o3o3x3 *a *a3o3/2*c] / 2).

Good idea, but I think it would be more important to group them by symmetry; first the o3o4o *b3o symmetry ones, then the o3o3o3o3 *a symmetry ones. In fact, I first thought of putting the members into two different categories based on their symmetry, but now I don't think this is a good idea. I could have one category for this regiment and divide it into subcategories based on symmetry and then sub-sub-categories based on your suggestion.

Rich regiment. The number and compositions of stut cadoca regiment members are very easy to derive (from the stut phiddix regiment) so I'll only make it high priority to post them if I think that some of the verfs are different from the stut phiddix regiment verfs under the appropriate changes of edge length.

Interesting. Stut cadoca shouldn't have any new members - it's not like octet where the equal edge lengths allowed you to put squats in there.

I would think that, after rich, there aren't many regiments that are hard to derive...

Your mention of that tetracomb reminded me: I've been working on an Excel spreadsheet to list regiments of tetracombs, and might publish it on here when I'm done. (Of course, many have not been counted yet.)

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

Alright, I've finished the first draft of my list of tetracomb regiments. There's just one problem, the forum won't let me attach the list. (Whenever I try, it says "The extension xlsx is not allowed.") I don't know how to stop this from happening, and don't know how to publish it otherwise - any suggestions?

I'm fairly sure that there will be more uniform tetracombs than uniform polytera (both excluding prisms and the like), if only due to the fact that larger polychoron regiments can appear - spic, giddic, and afdec are all larger than any tessic regiment. Also, keep in mind that in all regiments that I know of, spic and giddic act like they have 32 members, and afdec acts like 99 - this happens because the icoic ones appear twice.

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

That seems to actually work. (That's a nice way to get around it that I didn't think of!) Thanks for the suggestion!

Anyway, some notes:

Several regiments remain uncounted, since they have no spherical 5D regiment with a similar verf. I'm not sure how one would go about counting these.

Many of the names - especially for star tetracombs - are of my own invention. They are not official names, so don't treat them as such.

Also, I'm not sure of the completeness of this list - I might well have missed some families - but it includes most of the obvious ones.

Let me know if you have any comments or counts of currently-unknown ones.

I don't think this is correct. This is the number of members for a duowedge-verfed shape with non-doublable symmetry. But ricot, taken as o4x3o3x4o, has only 23 members under this symmetry, the same as sibrid. These include 7 members under o3o3o4x3o symmetry. It also has 8 distinct members under x3o3x4o3o symmetry, and even more as x3o3x4o *b3x and x3o3x *b3x *b3x. Unless you actually enumerated all of these and found 16 new members, in which case I'd love to see how you did it.

Indeed, right you are. that's >31 members. I'd think the x3o3x4o *b3x would be somewhat similar to sibrant's hinnic members, but there's probably more - and I'm not sure how to begin counting quarter-tesseractic symmteric ones (which don't have an analoogous verfed polyteron regiment).

There is a stut-cadoca-like tetracomb with a o3o3q |8/3| x3o3x verf and symbol x4o3o3o3x4/3 *b3e. It has at least 5 other Wythoffians in its regiment, with symbols x4o3o3o~x3/2*c, x4x3o3o3o4/3*b3e, x4/3o3o3o~x3/2*c, o3o3x4x4/3o3/2*b *c~*e, and o3o3o4x4/3x3/2*b *c~*e. It has tesses, quitits, wavitoths, gittiths, and octets. I propose that it be called small tritetrahedronary tesseractitristesseractiapeiratic tetracomb, or stat tatita. I've also been wondering if "tesseracti-" should be replaced by "tesserati-" to match "cubati-".

Neat. This regiment should be pretty large because it contains the octet regiment as a facet. The octet regiment here should act like it has 53 members because it is appearing in cyclotetrahedral symmetry, with the cyclotetrahedral members of the octet regiment appearing twice each. (a similar thing happens in stut cadoca - ditatha appears in two different orientations, so if you were to make a list of its members, you'd have to distinguish between "a-ditathas" and "b-ditathas".) In fact, the stut cadoca regiment may well appear as a facet of this one, making it even larger. (I'm not sure what the largest regiment of tetracombs will actually be.)

I'm beginning to suspect that something similar exists in higher dimensions as well.

Anyway, I'd really like to fill in some of these counts, but I have no clue how Hedrondude does it for polytera. (And I suspect some of these regiments will be larger than any polyteron regiment.)

There ought be some typo(s?) within that symbol, for it is bluddy nonsense!

First of all the last letter "e" probably is meant to re-reffer a priviously mentioned real node. Thus it ought be prefixed by an asterisk (*) as well. But then let's have a closer look on the so far encountered real nodes:
Code: Select all
`x4o3o3o3x4/3 *b3*ea b c d e`
that is, the "4/3" should reconnect to the b-th node, i.e. the "o" between the "4" and the "3". And then from that (b-th) node you want to connect to the e-th node, i.e. the second "x". But then those 2 nodes where already joined by the "4/3", thus they cannot be connected by a "3" again!

Or, when the empty space between the "4/3" and the "*b" was placed by will (i.e. representing an independent graph, only re-connected by the astersks), then you aim for a second connection between the b-th and the e-th node by that "3" (besides the already mentioned one ...o3o3o3x...), but then there remains that other link "4/3" unconnected, having no other node symbol to which it has to be connected to.

That is, did you have that in mind:
Code: Select all
`  +----------+  v          |             |x4o3o3o3x4/3*b3*e         ~~~  ~ |        ^       |        +-------+`
, which has the problems highlighted by the "~"-underlinements?
Or did you have in mind:
Code: Select all
`   *b3*e   /   \  v     v  x4o     x4/3(?)   3   3    o3o`
, which lacks the node symbol marked "(?)"?

Please shed some further light onto that.

PS: same holds most probably then for "x4x3o3o3o4/3*b3e" too, isn't it?

That hypothesis is right. In fact, I meant x4o3o3o3x4/3*a *b3*e (and by analogy, x4x3o3o3o4/3*b3e is supposed to be x4x3o3o3o4/3*a *b3e).
Lesson learned: label the nodes before linearizing the symbol.

This could well be the largest. Other incredibly large regiments will probably include those of cypit (probably not quite as big), stadit (has a cube || co verf), skivtadia (x4o || x4o || o4x verf), scyropot, aftadia, and its conjugate (which I don't see on your spreadsheet), and icot (due to the large range of symmetries it can take on).

Don't worry, I have a plan for when it comes time to search these regiments

Anyway, on to the subject I was planning to talk about.

Prismatic honeycombs and regiments

Besides the one I listed in my last list of uniform honeycombs, there are 3 more copycats of the square hemiapeirogonal prismatic honeycomb. One has only half of the azips blended into squats, one has rows of azips going perpendicular to columns of azips (the columns being perpendicular to the prismatic layers), and one has half of the azips blended into squats and the other half in columns instead of rows.

There are also 5 more copycats of the ditrigonal triangular hemiapeirogonal (ditatha) prismatic honeycomb, formed by starting at the ditatha pseudoprismatic honeycomb (containing trips and squats) and selectively un-blending the squats into rows or columns of azips.

There is one new copycat each of the prismatic honeycombs of sossa, gossa, satsa, hatha, snassa, rassersa, rarsisresa, rosassa, and rorisassa, besides the one where the azips blend into squats. In each case, it has columns instead of rows of azips.

The alternate triangular prismatic honeycomb (which is like the ditatha prismatic honeycomb except each layer gets the opposite set of trips) has 13 copycats, if my count is correct, formed by replacing rows of azips by squats or columns of azips. In 7 cases, the trats decompose into sets of azaps as well.

The alternate trihexagonal prismatic honeycomb has one copycat, where the square tilings decompose into rows of azips.

Finally, there are an uncounted number of other chon regiment members, by letting it act like x~x * x~x * x~x (the least density of symmetry that keeps it uniform.) One of these has the same verf as the koho, the skew-octahemioctachoron.

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

Interesting. Also, I just realized that test should actually have more than 11 members due to all the prismatic and duoprismatic ones - but since no prismatics appeared on that list anywhere else, I didn't bother to count them.

I just realized something... Stut Tatita's verf his a q-tet || co with sides of length x(8/3), while stadit has a cube || co verf (also with sides of length x(8/3). As you probably know, that q-tet can be inscribed into that cube. I'm not sure if this means those two regiments are related, but they could be. Another similar case is with siphatit (q-tet ||oct verf) and scicot (cube || oct verf).

As I said, the amount of tetracombs is far greater than the number of uniform polytera - and that's mostly due to the appearance of icoic symmetric polychora. (Hey, be glad no hyics appear, or else there would be several with >1000 members...)

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

There are some other cases where infinite cells of honeycombs can be decomposed into layers. In fact, I think there are so many that I should make a separate category for them, to keep their boringness from clogging up the other categories.

For example, the square tilings in members of the gacoca regiment can be decomposed into stacks of apeirogonal prisms, and they will remain uniform (at least the ones with full symmetry, but probably all of them). Parallel triangular tilings in certain octet regiment members can be decomposed into stacks of apeirogonal antiprisms, in fact multiple sets can as long as the boundaries between apeirogons from two stacks don't overlap. Stut cadoca might even have similar decompositions.

Cool! One day I'll try to make a catalog of all relations like this. For example, I realized that o4o3x3o4x, x4o3x3o4x, and o3x3o4x3o can all be cut from o3x3o4o3x.

I know. It really makes me wonder how many uniform hyperbolic honeycombs there are. (Although, due to the problem of hyperbolic conjugates sometimes having infinite density, and also the problem of avoiding hypercycles as faces, the number might be smaller than it would be otherwise.)

### Re: List of uniform honeycombs

A number of stary hyperbolic tilings of finite density are known. But there are not a lot of star-subgroups up there, and we mostly rely on Coxeter's theorm that starry symmetries are nade from regular ones.

The group o5o3o4o, for example, contains the subgroup o5/2o5o5/2o3*a of density 4, which leads to a number of uniform star-compounds. You can derive from this star-polytopes like x5x5/2o3o5/2*a.

There are nine 'convex' groups, but the only one that seems to contain usable subgroups is [5,3,4]. There are a number of non-wythoffian tilings, but these don't appear to lead to any useful star-groups either.

The conjucates of hyperbolic tilings are infinitely dense polytopes, and infinitely dense tilings. Thus the finite {5,3,6} produces an infinitely dense tiling {5/2,3,6}, and the tiling {5,3,4} produces an infinitely dense {5/2,3,4}. These polytopes are none the same useful, since they provide a filter to filter out numbers with too many places of phi-decimals. That is, the radii in {5,3,4} must be such that the isomorph fits into {5/2,3,4}.

I did a search and found 4 more of these, excluding the ones with rows of azips instead of squats. In fact, this excludes any where two coplanar azips meet.

One of these 4 has the same verf as koho, as I said above. This verf is an oct faceting containing four equilateral triangles (cube verfs), two right triangles (azip verfs), and one crossed quadrilateral (sha verf). Another has a verf that can best be described as a square pyramid except where one of the triangles points down instead of up, it contains 4 cube verfs, 2 azip verfs, and 1 squat verf. These two honeycombs have 4 cubes around each verf. The other two are blends of the cubic honeycomb with already-discovered figures; one blends it with columns of square-apeirogonal duoprisms (one column per vertex) and the other with sha-prisms on half of all the honeycomb's layers. These two have 6 cubes around each verf.

It can be proven that all uniform facetings of a hypercubic tessellation have an even number of hypercube facets around each vertex. To see this, imagine the tessellations needed as facets to connect to the cubes that don't connect to cubes themselves; in n dimensions there are up to n sets of these, each in a perpendicular hyperplane. (In 2 dimensions, for example, sha has horizontal and vertical apeirogons. In 3 dimensions, cuhsquah has 3 sets of perpendicular squats.) Except that sometimes it's multiple facets in the same hyperplane, for example rows of apeirogons with blank rows in between. But for the purposes of the proof, those can be considered a single "facet" despite not being properly connected. Let's assume by induction that every possible hypercubic-tessellation-faceting in n - 1 dimensions has an even number of hypercubes around every vertex. Then, if one is used as an apeiratic facet in an n-cubic-tessellation-faceting, it must connect to an even number of n-cubes around each vertex, one at each (n - 1)-cube facet of itself. Any other (n - 1)-cubes in the same plane as the infinite facet - but not part of it - must be connected to two hypercubes above and below. Adding these pairs of n-cubes to the even number touching the infinite facet results in a total which is still even. Thus the total number of hypercubes whose facets lie in a particular hyperplane of the n-dimensional hypercubic-tessellation-faceting is even. However, as each n-cube has n sets of facets around each vertex, every n-cube around a vertex must have one facet lying in each of the n hyperplanes. So the even number of n-cubes derived earlier was the total number of n-cubes around each vertex, and thus each vertex has an even number of n-cubes around it.
