# Polytope Wiki:About

The Polytope Wiki is a wiki dedicated to the classification, description, and discovery of polytopes.

Polytopes are a wide class of geometric shapes that generalize the intuitive notions of "flat" shapes like polygons and polyhedra into higher (and lower) dimensions. Some of their main categories are:

- Regular polytopes
- Uniform polytopes
- Semi-uniform polytopes
- Scaliform polytopes
- Convex regular-faced polytopes
