The prismatorhombated tesseract, or prit, also commonly called the runcitruncated 16-cell, is a convex uniform polychoron that consists of 24 cubes, 32 hexagonal prisms, 16 truncated tetrahedra, and 8 small rhombicuboctahedra. 1 cube, 2 hexagonal prisms, 1 truncated tetrahedron, and 1 small rhombicuboctahedron join at each vertex. As one of its names suggests, it can be obtained by runcitruncating the hexadecachoron.

Representations[edit | edit source]

A prismatorhombated tesseract has the following Coxeter diagrams:

  • x4o3x3x () (full symmetry)
  • xxxxxx4ooxxoo3xuxxux&#xt (B3 axial, small rhombicuboctahedron-first)
  • qo3xx3oq *b3xx&#zx (D4 symmetry)
  • Xwx xxx4oox3xux&#zx (B3×A1 symmetry)

Semi-uniform variant[edit | edit source]

The prismatorhombated tesseract has a semi-uniform variant of the form x4o3y3z that maintains its full symmetry. This variant uses 8 small rhombicuboctahedra of form x4o3y, 16 truncated tetrahedra of form z3y3o, 24 square prisms of form z x4o, and 32 ditrigonal prisms of form x y3z as cells, with 3 edge lengths.

With edges of length a, b, and c (such that it forms a4o3b3c), its circumradius is given by .

It has coordinates given by all permutations of:

  • .
