Vertex Adjacency in a
(4D Hypercube)
and in a 4
4 Array

IMAGE- Tesseract.

The same 16 subsets or points can
be arranged in a 44 array that has,
when the array's opposite edges are
joined together, the same adjacencies
as those of the above tesseract.

Thus the 44 array is also a tesseract, which,
because of its usefulness in picturing Galois
geometry, we may call the Galois tesseract.

The same sort of figures appeared in
a 1950 paper by H. S. M. Coxeter—

Coxeter in 1950 on adjacency of vertices in tesseract and in 4x4 array
