Summary normal polytopes stand on the finish of greater than millennia of geometrical study, which started with usual polygons and polyhedra. The speedy improvement of the topic long ago two decades has ended in a wealthy new concept that includes an enticing interaction of mathematical parts, together with geometry, combinatorics, workforce thought and topology. this can be the 1st complete, updated account of the topic and its ramifications. It meets a serious want for one of these textual content, simply because no booklet has been released during this region considering the fact that Coxeter's "Regular Polytopes" (1948) and "Regular complicated Polytopes" (1974).
