The point (also called monad or monon[1]). is the only possible 0-polytope or polyon. If the nullitope is not considered, this is the simplest possible polytope overall, as it has no other lower-dimensional elements. It appears as the vertices in all higher polytopes.

A point is simultaneously a 0-simplex, a 0-hypercube, and a 0-orthoplex. Furthermore, a point is the pyramid of the nullitope.

Somewhat contrary to intuition, the point is technically asymmetrical, as its only automorphism is trivial.

## Vertex coordinates

Coordinates for a point are simply:

• ${\displaystyle ()}$.
