Category 11: Antipodiumverts


The antipodiumverts (also called antipodites) have vertex figures shaped like triangle antipodia and their facetings. There are 40 polychora in this category which is divided up into 6 regiments each with 7 members, except spid which has 5. The regiments are spid, sidpith, sidpixhi, siddapady, sadixady, and gixhidy. Spid, sidpith, and sidpixhi are convex. Their 3-D counterparts are the regiments of co (as the rhombitetratetrahedron), sirco, srid, and raded. Many of them have conjugates in category 12. For each regiment (except spid), the first four are tame, while the last three are wild. Many of the LOCs and piece counts of the last three regiments may no longer be accurate due to neo-filling. Following are the antipodites.
Slices of the Antipodiumverts

Above is a slice of all the antipodiverts except for gohihix and hidy (have yet to code in giid cells for orientables). They are in the same order as the polychora in the text.


Spid Regiment

Spid Regiment Verfs

This 5 member regiment commonly shows up in several uniform polytera as terons (4-D facets) usually acting like it has 7 members (nipdip and piphid shows up twice since they can be oriented in two ways). All of them have 20 vertices. Spid's symbol is xoox. Spid acts like a 4-D version of co. Piphid and nipdip have pennic symmetry, while spid, duhd, and phud have deca symmetry. Spid is one of the coolest looking regiments with pennic symmetry. Phud and nipdip are wild, others are tame.

442. Spid - (SPID) small prismatodecachoron. Its cells are 10 tets and 20 trips. Its verf is a long trap (trigonal antiprism). It has 30 pieces of two types, LOC = 4. It is convex.

This polychoron has a dangling appearance, and is one of the most interesting of this regiment. It has 50 pieces of two types, LOC = 5.

445. Phud - (FUDD - just like Elmer's last name) prismatohemidecachoron. Its cells are 20 trips and 5 ohoes. It also has 10 pseudo-tets. Its verf is a long inverted trap. It has 60 pieces in two types, LOC = 7.

Sidpith Regiment

Sidpith Regiment Verfs

The sidpith regiment which has tessic symmetry gets more interesting the more one looks at it - first it had only 7 members, then iquipadah was found as well as the compound of 2 sodips, and lately 6 scaliforms have been found in this regiment - as it turns out, the blend of four sidpiths leads to yet another regiment, the ondip regiment which is loaded with scaliforms and compounds - however only the original 7 sidpith members are counted in category 11. The conjugate of this regiment is the gittith regiment from category 12. These all have 64 vertices. Sidpith's symbol is xoo'x, it is the 4-D version of sirco.
