The 13-5 step prism is a convex isogonal polychoron and a member of the step prism family. It has 13 tetragonal disphenoids and 26 phyllic disphenoids as cells. 4 tetragonal and 8 phyllic disphenoids join at each vertex. It is also the pentagonal funk tegum.

Compared to other 13-vertex step prisms, this polychoron has doubled symmetry, because 13 is a factor of 52+1 = 26.

Its vertex figure is topologically equivalent to the Johnson solid snub disphenoid.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1:$\sqrt{\frac{2-\cos\frac{2\pi}{13}+\cos\frac{3\pi}{13}}{2-\sin\frac{\pi}{26}-\sin\frac{5\pi}{26}}}$ ≈ 1:1.19192.

## Vertex coordinates

Coordinates for the vertices of a 13-5 step prism of circumradius 2 are given by:

• (sin(2πk/13), cos(2πk/13), sin(10πk/13), cos(10πk/13)),

where k is an integer from 0 to 12.

## Isogonal derivatives

Substitution by vertices of these following elements will produce these convex isogonal polychora:
