- Synergetics coordinates
Synergetics coordinates have each unit as a
simplex: a triangle, tetrahedron, pentachoron, etc., in fact a regular simplex, rather than like Cartesian coordinateswhich use a rectangleor box. Therefore synergetics coordinates are ordered n-tuples in which is equivalent to .
For example, regular
triangular coordinatesare of the form such that are equal to or greater than 0.
Similarly, regular tetrahedral coordinates are of the form such that are equal to or greater than 0.
