This article lists the regular polytopes and regular polytope compounds in Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic spaces.
The Schläfli symbol describes every regular tessellation of an nsphere, Euclidean and hyperbolic spaces. A Schläfli symbol describing an npolytope equivalently describes a tessellation of an (n − 1)sphere. In addition, the symmetry of a regular polytope or tessellation is expressed as a Coxeter group, which Coxeter expressed identically to the Schläfli symbol, except delimiting by square brackets, a notation that is called Coxeter notation. Another related symbol is the CoxeterDynkin diagram which represents a symmetry group with no rings, and the represents regular polytope or tessellation with a ring on the first node. For example, the cube has Schläfli symbol {4,3}, and with its octahedral symmetry, [4,3] or , it is represented by Coxeter diagram .
The regular polytopes are grouped by dimension and subgrouped by convex, nonconvex and infinite forms. Nonconvex forms use the same vertices as the convex forms, but have intersecting facets. Infinite forms tessellate a onelowerdimensional Euclidean space.
Infinite forms can be extended to tessellate a hyperbolic space. Hyperbolic space is like normal space at a small scale, but parallel lines diverge at a distance. This allows vertex figures to have negative angle defects, like making a vertex with seven equilateral triangles and allowing it to lie flat. It cannot be done in a regular plane, but can be at the right scale of a hyperbolic plane.
A more general definition of regular polytopes which do not have simple Schläfli symbols includes regular skew polytopes and regular skew apeirotopes with nonplanar facets or vertex figures.
This table shows a summary of regular polytope counts by dimension.
Note that the Euclidean and hyperbolic tilings are given one dimension more than what would be expected. This is because of an analogy with finite polytopes: a convex regular npolytope can be seen as a tessellation of (n−1)dimensional spherical space. Thus the three regular tilings of the Euclidean plane (by triangles, squares, and hexagons) are listed under dimension three rather than two.

There are no Euclidean regular star tessellations in any number of dimensions.
A Coxeter diagram represent mirror "planes" as nodes, and puts a ring around a node if a point is not on the plane. A dion { }, , is a point p and its mirror image point p', and the line segment between them. 
A onedimensional polytope or 1polytope is a closed line segment, bounded by its two endpoints. A 1polytope is regular by definition and is represented by Schläfli symbol { },^{[2]}^{[3]} or a Coxeter diagram with a single ringed node, . Norman Johnson calls it a dion^{[4]} and gives it the Schläfli symbol { }.
Although trivial as a polytope, it appears as the edges of polygons and other higher dimensional polytopes.^{[5]} It is used in the definition of uniform prisms like Schläfli symbol { }×{p}, or Coxeter diagram as a Cartesian product of a line segment and a regular polygon.^{[6]}
The twodimensional polytopes are called polygons. Regular polygons are equilateral and cyclic. A pgonal regular polygon is represented by Schläfli symbol {p}.
Usually only convex polygons are considered regular, but star polygons, like the pentagram, can also be considered regular. They use the same vertices as the convex forms, but connect in an alternate connectivity which passes around the circle more than once to be completed.
Star polygons should be called nonconvex rather than concave because the intersecting edges do not generate new vertices and all the vertices exist on a circle boundary.
The Schläfli symbol {p} represents a regular pgon.

The regular digon {2} can be considered to be a degenerate regular polygon. It can be realized nondegenerately in some nonEuclidean spaces, such as on the surface of a sphere or torus. For example, digon can be realised nondegenerately as a spherical lune. A monogon {1} could also be realised on the sphere as a single point with a great circle through it.^{[7]} However, a monogon is not a valid abstract polytope because its single edge is incident to only one vertex rather than two.

There exist infinitely many regular star polytopes in two dimensions, whose Schläfli symbols consist of rational numbers {n/m}. They are called star polygons and share the same vertex arrangements of the convex regular polygons.
In general, for any natural number n, there are npointed star regular polygonal stars with Schläfli symbols {n/m} for all m such that m < n/2 (strictly speaking {n/m}={n/(n−m)}) and m and n are coprime (as such, all stellations of a polygon with a prime number of sides will be regular stars). Cases where m and n are not coprime are called compound polygons.

Star polygons that can only exist as spherical tilings, similarly to the monogon and digon, may exist (for example: {3/2}, {5/3}, {5/4}, {7/4}, {9/5}), however these do not appear to have been studied in detail.
There also exist failed star polygons, such as the piangle, which do not cover the surface of a circle finitely many times.^{[1]}
In 3dimensional space, a regular skew polygon is called an antiprismatic polygon, with the vertex arrangement of an antiprism, and a subset of edges, zigzagging between top and bottom polygons.

In 4dimensions a regular skew polygon can have vertices on a Clifford torus and related by a Clifford displacement. Unlike antiprismatic skew polygons, skew polygons on double rotations can include an oddnumber of sides.
They can be seen in the Petrie polygons of the convex regular 4polytopes, seen as regular plane polygons in the perimeter of Coxeter plane projection:

In three dimensions, polytopes are called polyhedra:
A regular polyhedron with Schläfli symbol {p,q}, Coxeter diagrams , has a regular face type {p}, and regular vertex figure {q}.
A vertex figure (of a polyhedron) is a polygon, seen by connecting those vertices which are one edge away from a given vertex. For regular polyhedra, this vertex figure is always a regular (and planar) polygon.
Existence of a regular polyhedron {p,q} is constrained by an inequality, related to the vertex figure's angle defect:
By enumerating the permutations, we find five convex forms, four star forms and three plane tilings, all with polygons {p} and {q} limited to: {3}, {4}, {5}, {5/2}, and {6}.
Beyond Euclidean space, there is an infinite set of regular hyperbolic tilings.
The five convex regular polyhedra are called the Platonic solids. The vertex figure is given with each vertex count. All these polyhedra have an Euler characteristic (χ) of 2.

In spherical geometry, regular spherical polyhedra (tilings of the sphere) exist that would otherwise be degenerate as polytopes. These are the hosohedra {2,n} and their dual dihedra {n,2}. Coxeter calls these cases "improper" tessellations.^{[8]}

Stardihedra and hosohedra {p/q,2} and {2,p/q} also exist for any star polygon {p/q}.
The regular star polyhedra are called the Kepler–Poinsot polyhedra and there are four of them, based on the vertex arrangements of the dodecahedron {5,3} and icosahedron {3,5}:
As spherical tilings, these star forms overlap the sphere multiple times, called its density, being 3 or 7 for these forms. The tiling images show a single spherical polygon face in yellow.

There are infinitely many failed star polyhedra. These are also spherical tilings with star polygons in their Schläfli symbols, but they do not cover a sphere finitely many times. Some examples are {5/2,4}, {5/2,9}, {7/2,3}, {5/2,5/2}, {7/2,7/3}, {4,5/2}, and {3,7/3}.
Regular skew polyhedra are generalizations to the set of regular polyhedron which include the possibility of nonplanar vertex figures.
For 4dimensional skew polyhedra, Coxeter offered a modified Schläfli symbol {l,mn} for these figures, with {l,m} implying the vertex figure, m lgons around a vertex, and ngonal holes. Their vertex figures are skew polygons, zigzagging between two planes.
The regular skew polyhedra, represented by {l,mn}, follow this equation:
Four of them can be seen in 4dimensions as a subset of faces of four regular 4polytopes, sharing the same vertex arrangement and edge arrangement:
{4, 6  3}  {6, 4  3}  {4, 8  3}  {8, 4  3} 

Regular 4polytopes with Schläfli symbol have cells of type , faces of type , edge figures , and vertex figures .
The existence of a regular 4polytope is constrained by the existence of the regular polyhedra . A suggested name for 4polytopes is "polychoron".^{[9]}
Each will exist in a space dependent upon this expression:
These constraints allow for 21 forms: 6 are convex, 10 are nonconvex, one is a Euclidean 3space honeycomb, and 4 are hyperbolic honeycombs.
The Euler characteristic for convex 4polytopes is zero:
The 6 convex regular 4polytopes are shown in the table below. All these 4polytopes have an Euler characteristic (χ) of 0.

Di4topes and hoso4topes exist as regular tessellations of the 3sphere.
Regular di4topes (2 facets) include: {3,3,2}, {3,4,2}, {4,3,2}, {5,3,2}, {3,5,2}, {p,2,2}, and their hoso4tope duals (2 vertices): {2,3,3}, {2,4,3}, {2,3,4}, {2,3,5}, {2,5,3}, {2,2,p}. 4polytopes of the form {2,p,2} are the same as {2,2,p}. There are also the cases {p,2,q} which have dihedral cells and hosohedral vertex figures.

There are ten regular star 4polytopes, which are called the Schläfli–Hess 4polytopes. Their vertices are based on the convex 120cell {5,3,3} and 600cell {3,3,5}.
Ludwig Schläfli found four of them and skipped the last six because he would not allow forms that failed the Euler characteristic on cells or vertex figures (for zerohole tori: F+V−E=2). Edmund Hess (1843–1903) completed the full list of ten in his German book Einleitung in die Lehre von der Kugelteilung mit besonderer Berücksichtigung ihrer Anwendung auf die Theorie der Gleichflächigen und der gleicheckigen Polyeder (1883)[1].
There are 4 unique edge arrangements and 7 unique face arrangements from these 10 regular star 4polytopes, shown as orthogonal projections:

There are 4 failed potential regular star 4polytopes permutations: {3,5/2,3}, {4,3,5/2}, {5/2,3,4}, {5/2,3,5/2}. Their cells and vertex figures exist, but they do not cover a hypersphere with a finite number of repetitions.
In five dimensions, a regular polytope can be named as where is the 4face type, is the cell type, is the face type, and is the face figure, is the edge figure, and is the vertex figure.
A regular 5polytope exists only if and are regular 4polytopes.
The space it fits in is based on the expression:
Enumeration of these constraints produce 3 convex polytopes, zero nonconvex polytopes, 3 4space tessellations, and 5 hyperbolic 4space tessellations. There are no nonconvex regular polytopes in five dimensions or higher.
In dimensions 5 and higher, there are only three kinds of convex regular polytopes.^{[10]}

There are also improper cases where some numbers in the Schläfli symbol are 2. For example, {p,q,r,...2} is an improper regular spherical polytope whenever {p,q,r...} is a regular spherical polytope, and {2,...p,q,r} is an improper regular spherical polytope whenever {...p,q,r} is a regular spherical polytope. Such polytopes may also be used as facets, yielding forms such as {p,q,...2...y,z}.

There are no nonconvex regular polytopes in five dimensions or higher, excluding hosotopes formed from lowerdimensional nonconvex regular polytopes.
A projective regular (n+1)polytope exists when an original regular nspherical tessellation, {p,q,...}, is centrally symmetric. Such a polytope is named hemi{p,q,...}, and contain half as many elements. Coxeter gives a symbol {p,q,...}/2, while McMullen writes {p,q,...}_{h/2} with h as the coxeter number.^{[11]}
Evensided regular polygons have hemi2ngon projective polygons, {2p}/2.
There are 4 regular projective polyhedra related to 4 of 5 Platonic solids.
The hemicube and hemioctahedron generalize as hemincubes and heminorthoplexes in any dimensions.

An apeirotope or infinite polytope is a polytope which has infinitely many facets. An napeirotope is an infinite npolytope: a 2apeirotope or apeirogon is an infinite polygon, a 3apeirotope or apeirohedron is an infinite polyhedron, etc.
There are two main geometric classes of apeirotope:^{[12]}
The straight apeirogon is a regular tessellation of the line, subdividing it into infinitely many equal segments. It has infinitely many vertices and edges. Its Schläfli symbol is {∞}, and Coxeter diagram .

Apeirogons in the hyperbolic plane, most notably the regular apeirogon, {∞}, can have a curvature just like finite polygons of the Euclidean plane, with the vertices circumscribed by horocycles or hypercycles rather than circles.
Regular apeirogons that are scaled to converge at infinity have the symbol {∞} and exist on horocycles, while more generally they can exist on hypercycles.

Above are two regular hyperbolic apeirogons in the Poincaré disk model, the right one shows perpendicular reflection lines of divergent fundamental domains, separated by length λ.
A skew apeirogon in two dimensions forms a zigzag line in the plane. If the zigzag is even and symmetrical, then the apeirogon is regular.
Skew apeirogons can be constructed in any number of dimensions. In three dimensions, a regular skew apeirogon traces out a helical spiral and may be either left or righthanded.

There are two improper regular tilings: {∞,2}, an apeirogonal dihedron, made from two apeirogons, each filling half the plane; and secondly, its dual, {2,∞}, an apeirogonal hosohedron, seen as an infinite set of parallel lines.
{∞,2}, 
{2,∞}, 
There are no regular plane tilings of star polygons. There are many enumerations that fit in the plane (1/p + 1/q = 1/2), like {8/3,8}, {10/3,5}, {5/2,10}, {12/5,12}, etc., but none repeat periodically.
Tessellations of hyperbolic 2space are hyperbolic tilings. There are infinitely many regular tilings in H^{2}. As stated above, every positive integer pair {p,q} such that 1/p + 1/q < 1/2 gives a hyperbolic tiling. In fact, for the general Schwarz triangle (p, q, r) the same holds true for 1/p + 1/q + 1/r < 1.
There are a number of different ways to display the hyperbolic plane, including the Poincaré disc model which maps the plane into a circle, as shown below. It should be recognized that all of the polygon faces in the tilings below are equalsized and only appear to get smaller near the edges due to the projection applied, very similar to the effect of a camera fisheye lens.
There are infinitely many flat regular 3apeirotopes (apeirohedra) as regular tilings of the hyperbolic plane, of the form {p,q}, with p+q<pq/2. (previously listed above as tessellations)

The tilings {p, ∞} have ideal vertices, on the edge of the Poincaré disc model. Their duals {∞, p} have ideal apeirogonal faces, meaning that they are inscribed in horocycles. One could go further (as is done in the table above) and find tilings with ultraideal vertices, outside the Poincaré disc, which are dual to tiles inscribed in hypercycles; in what is symbolised {p, iπ/λ} above, infinitely many tiles still fit around each ultraideal vertex.^{[13]} (Parallel lines in extended hyperbolic space meet at an ideal point; ultraparallel lines meet at an ultraideal point.)^{[14]}
There are 2 infinite forms of hyperbolic tilings whose faces or vertex figures are star polygons: {m/2, m} and their duals {m, m/2} with m = 7, 9, 11, .... The {m/2, m} tilings are stellations of the {m, 3} tilings while the {m, m/2} dual tilings are facetings of the {3, m} tilings and greatenings of the {m, 3} tilings.
The patterns {m/2, m} and {m, m/2} continue for odd m < 7 as polyhedra: when m = 5, we obtain the small stellated dodecahedron and great dodecahedron, and when m = 3, the case degenerates to a tetrahedron. The other two Kepler–Poinsot polyhedra (the great stellated dodecahedron and great icosahedron) do not have regular hyperbolic tiling analogues. If m is even, depending on how we choose to define {m/2}, we can either obtain degenerate double covers of other tilings or compound tilings.

Their cells and vertex figures are all regular hosohedra {2,n}, dihedra, {n,2}, and Euclidean tilings. These improper regular tilings are constructionally related to prismatic uniform honeycombs by truncation operations. They are higherdimensional analogues of the order2 apeirogonal tiling and apeirogonal hosohedron.

Noncompact solutions exist as Lorentzian Coxeter groups, and can be visualized with open domains in hyperbolic space (the fundamental tetrahedron having ultraideal vertices). All honeycombs with hyperbolic cells or vertex figures and do not have 2 in their Schläfli symbol are noncompact.
