We have wrote a new package for PSTricks for drawing 2 dimensional
projection of complex regular polyopes (after the work of Coxeter).
The package consists in a library of macro for drawing the
projections. The complex polytopes appears in the study of the roots
systems and play a crucial role in many domains related to
mathematics and physics. These polytopes have been completely
described by Coxeter in his book "Regular Complex Polytopes". there
exist only a finite numbers of exceptional regular complex polytopes
(for example the ikos\ae dron) and some infinite series (for
example, one can construct multi-dimensional analogous of the
hypercube in any -finite- dimension). The library contains two
packages. The first, pst-coxcoor, is devoted to the exceptional
complex regular polytopes whose coordinates have been pre-computed.
The second, pst-coxeterp, is devoted to the infinite series.
