Hypercube

As used in geometry, a hypercube is an extrapolation of the cube or square to n dimensions. For example, a 4th dimensional hypercube is called a tesseract. Therefore, an n-dimensional hypercube is also known as an n-cube. It is best drawn and represented in non-Euclidean geometry.

Tesseract

A tesseract is the 4th dimensional hypercube. It is made by combining two cubes. The net of a tesseract is composed of 8 cubes. It has the Schlaefli symbol ${4,3,3}$. Its vertices are ${\pm1, \pm1, \pm1, \pm1}$.
