Abstract

Maniplexes are combinatorial objects that generalize, simultaneously, maps on surfaces and abstract polytopes. We are interested on studying highly symmetric maniplexes, particularly those having maximal ‘rotational’ symmetry. This paper introduces an operation on polytopes and maniplexes which, in its simplest form, can be interpreted as twisting the connection between facets. This is first described in detail in dimension 4 and then generalized to higher dimensions. Since the twist on a maniplex preserves all the orientation preserving symmetries of the original maniplex, we apply the operation to reflexible maniplexes, to attack the problem of finding chiral polytopes in higher dimensions.
