# 5-cell honeycomb

In four-dimensional Euclidean geometry, the 4-simplex honeycomb, 5-cell honeycomb or pentachoric-dispentachoric honeycomb is a space-filling tessellation honeycomb. It is composed of 5-cells and rectified 5-cells facets in a ratio of 1:1. (Wikipedia).

Why do Bees build Hexagons? Honeycomb Conjecture explained by Thomas Hales

Mathematician Thomas Hales explains the Honeycomb Conjecture in the context of bees. Hales proved that the hexagon tiling (hexagonal honeycomb) is the most efficient way to maximise area whilst minimising perimeter. Interview with Oxford Mathematician Dr Tom Crawford. Produced by Tom Roc

Reaching for Infinity Through Honeycombs – Roice Nelson

Pick any three integers larger than 2. We describe how to understand and draw a picture of a corresponding kaleidoscopic {p,q,r} honeycomb, up to and including {∞,∞,∞}.

Three space-filling shapes hiding in the structure of diamond

Diamond is an arrangement of carbon atoms called the diamond cubic structure. As well as the cubes there are two other space-filling shapes that are found within it. In the unit cell I say "three more inside". It should of course be "four more inside". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamo

Sudoku Colorings of a 16-cell Pre-Fractal – Hideki Tsuiki

This is a joint work with Yasuyuki Tsukamoto. 16-cell is a 4-dimensional polytope with a lot of beautiful properties, in particular with respect to cubic projections of a fractal based on it. We define SUDOKU-like colorings of a 3D cubic lattice which is defined based on properties of a
