4D Euclidean space
17 Dec 2011: Improved the cell count summary tables for the rectified 600-cell, the runcinated 120-cell, and the truncated 600-cell. Used polyhedron icons instead of their verbose names in column headings so that the tables are not overly wide.
1 Dec 2011: The polytope of the month for December is up!
This month's polytope is the truncated 16-cell. It is a simple member of the tesseract family of uniform polychora, and the direct 4D analogue of the truncated octahedron. Whereas the truncated octahedron is bounded by 6 squares and 8 hexagons, the truncated 16-cell is bounded by 8 octahedra and 16 truncated tetrahedra.
As a bonus, we have included two animations of the truncated 16-cell rotating through 4D space. Check it out!

Re-touched renderings of the 120-cell: brighten the colors, and reduce clutter by using transparent ridges instead of edges for the structure projections.

The Polytope of the Month for November is up!
This month's polytope is the runcitruncated 5-cell, another cute member of the sweet and simple 5-cell family of 4D uniform polytopes. It is bounded by 5 truncated tetrahedra and 5 cuboctahedra, with the gaps in-between filled in by triangular prisms and hexagonal prisms. Full Cartesian coordinates are provided for your reference.

The Polytope of the Month for October is up! Sorry for the late update.
Added 5D coordinates for the 5-cell uniform polytopes—these are much nicer than the projected 4D coordinates.
Reduced edge radius in the projections of the omnitruncated 5-cell. They should look nicer now.
