  • Simplex is also known as point, line segment, triangle, tetrahedron, pentachoron, hexateron, etc.
  • Simplex can be used as a geometric region and graphics primitive.
  • Simplex[n] for integer n is equivalent to Simplex[{{0,,0},{1,0,,0},,{0,,0,1}}], the unit standard simplex in .
  • Example simplices where rows correspond to embedding dimension:
  • Simplex represents all convex combinations of the given points . The region is dimensional when are affinely independent and .
