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 5^{2}+1 = 26.

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

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:1.19192.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

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

- (sin(2π
*k*/13), cos(2π*k*/13), sin(10π*k*/13), cos(10π*k*/13)),

where *k* is an integer from 0 to 12.

## Isogonal derivatives[edit | edit source]

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

- Tetragonal disphenoid (13): 13-5 step prism
- Edge (26): Small 13-5 double step prism
- Edge (26): Small 13-5 double gyrostep prism
