A projective polytope of rank n  + 1 is a tessellation of n -dimensional real projective space, which is equivalent to an n -hypersphere with antipodal points identified.

Hemi-polytopes[edit | edit source]

A diagram illustrating a fundamental domain of the Hemicube. Identically labeled vertices and edges are identified.

The projective polytopes are exactly the hemi-polytopes of the spherical polytopes.
