In 5-dimensional geometry, there are 19 uniform polytopes with A5 symmetry. There is one self-dual regular form, the 5-simplex with 6 vertices.

Each can be visualized as symmetric orthographic projections in Coxeter planes of the A5 Coxeter group, and other subgroups.

Graphs

Symmetric orthographic projections of these 19 polytopes can be made in the A5, A4, A3, A2 Coxeter planes. Ak graphs have [k+1] symmetry. For even k and symmetrically nodea_1ed-diagrams, symmetry doubles to [2(k+1)].

These 19 polytopes are each shown in these 4 symmetry planes, with vertices and edges drawn, and vertices colored by the number of overlapping vertices in each projective position.
