In ten-dimensional geometry, a 10-polytope is a 10-dimensional polytope whose boundary consists of 9-polytope facets, exactly two such facets meeting at each 8-polytope ridge.

A uniform 10-polytope is one which is vertex-transitive, and constructed from uniform facets.

## Regular 10-polytopes

Regular 10-polytopes can be represented by the Schläfli symbol {p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x}, with x {p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w} 9-polytope facets around each peak.

There are exactly three such convex regular 10-polytopes:

1. {3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3} - 10-simplex
2. {4,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3} - 10-cube
3. {3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,4} - 10-orthoplex

There are no nonconvex regular 10-polytopes.

## Euler characteristic

The topology of any given 10-polytope is defined by its Betti numbers and torsion coefficients.[1]

The value of the Euler characteristic used to characterise polyhedra does not generalize usefully to higher dimensions, and is zero for all 10-polytopes, whatever their underlying topology. This inadequacy of the Euler characteristic to reliably distinguish between different topologies in higher dimensions led to the discovery of the more sophisticated Betti numbers.[1]

Similarly, the notion of orientability of a polyhedron is insufficient to characterise the surface twistings of toroidal polytopes, and this led to the use of torsion coefficients.[1]

## Uniform 10-polytopes by fundamental Coxeter groups

Uniform 10-polytopes with reflective symmetry can be generated by these three Coxeter groups, represented by permutations of rings of the Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams:

# Coxeter group Coxeter-Dynkin diagram
1 A10 [39]
2 B10 [4,38]
3 D10 [37,1,1]

Selected regular and uniform 10-polytopes from each family include:

1. Simplex family: A10 [39] -
• 527 uniform 10-polytopes as permutations of rings in the group diagram, including one regular:
• {39} - 10-simplex -
2. Hypercube/orthoplex family: B10 [4,38] -
• 1023 uniform 10-polytopes as permutations of rings in the group diagram, including two regular ones:
• {4,38} - 10-cube or dekeract -
• {38,4} - 10-orthoplex or decacross -
• h{4,38} - 10-demicube .
3. Demihypercube D10 family: [37,1,1] -
• 767 uniform 10-polytopes as permutations of rings in the group diagram, including:
• 17,1 - 10-demicube or demidekeract -
• 71,1 - 10-orthoplex -

## The A10 family

The A10 family has symmetry of order 39,916,800 (11 factorial).

There are 512+16-1=527 forms based on all permutations of the Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams with one or more rings. 31 are shown below: all one and two ringed forms, and the final omnitruncated form. Bowers-style acronym names are given in parentheses for cross-referencing.

## The D10 family

The D10 family has symmetry of order 1,857,945,600 (10 factorial × 29).

This family has 3×256−1=767 Wythoffian uniform polytopes, generated by marking one or more nodes of the D10 Coxeter-Dynkin diagram. Of these, 511 (2×256−1) are repeated from the B10 family and 256 are unique to this family, with 2 listed below. Bowers-style acronym names are given in parentheses for cross-referencing.

## Regular and uniform honeycombs

There are four fundamental affine Coxeter groups that generate regular and uniform tessellations in 9-space:
# Coxeter group Coxeter-Dynkin diagram
1 {\tilde{A}}_9 [3[10]]
2 {\tilde{B}}_9 [4,37,4]
3 {\tilde{C}}_9 h[4,37,4]
[4,36,31,1]
4 {\tilde{D}}_9 q[4,37,4]
[31,1,35,31,1]

Regular and uniform tessellations include:

### Regular and uniform hyperbolic honeycombs

There are no compact hyperbolic Coxeter groups of rank 10, groups that can generate honeycombs with all finite facets, and a finite vertex figure. However there are 3 noncompact hyperbolic Coxeter groups of rank 9, each generating uniform honeycombs in 9-space as permutations of rings of the Coxeter diagrams.

 {\bar{Q}}_9 = [31,1,34,32,1]: {\bar{S}}_9 = [4,35,32,1]: E_{10} or {\bar{T}}_9 = [36,2,1]:

Three honeycombs from the E_{10} family, generated by end-ringed Coxeter diagrams are:
