In mathematics, a regular 4-polytope is a regular four-dimensional appligraphic-groupe.com are the four-dimensional analogs of the regular polyhedra in three dimensions and the regular polygons in two dimensions.. Regular 4-polytopes were first described by the Swiss mathematician Ludwig Schläfli in the midth century, although the full set were not discovered until later.
