PST-Cox v1.0 ------------------------ This project contains two LaTeX packages for drawing regular complex polytopes: - pst-coxcoor: pre-calculated regular polytopes up to dimension 4. - pst-coxeterp: infinite series of regular complex regular polytopes. See for more information the files pst-coxcoor_doc.ps and pst-coxeterp_doc.ps of the package. First check whether the project can be installed by the distribution that you use. The packages need PSTrick and xkeyval of Hendri Adriaens. The structure and location in the Tex-tree is shown below.

## pst-cox – Drawing regular complex polytopes with PSTricks

Pst-cox is a PSTricks package for drawing 2-dimensional projections of complex regular polytopes (after the work of Coxeter).

The package consists of a macro library for drawing the projections. The complex polytopes appear in the study of the root systems and play a crucial role in many domains related to mathematics and physics. These polytopes have been completely described by Coxeter in his book “Regular Complex Polytopes”.

There exist only a finite numbers of exceptional regular complex polytopes
(for example the icosahedron) and some infinite series (for example,
one can construct a multi-dimensional analogue of the hypercube in
any *finite* dimension).

The library contains two packages. The first, pst-coxcoor, is devoted to the exceptional complex regular polytopes whose coordinates have been pre-computed. The second, pst-coxeterp, is devoted to the infinite series.
