- In geometry, a
**hypercube**is an*n*-dimensional analogue of a square (n = 2) and a cube (*n*= 3). It is a closed, compact, convex figure whose 1-skeleton consists of groups of opposite parallel line segments aligned in each of the space's dimensions, perpendicular to each other and of the same length.An n-dimensional hypercube is also called an n-cube. The term "measure polytope" is also used, notably in the work of H.S.M. Coxeter (originally from Elte, 1912

^{[1]}), but it has now been superseded.The hypercube is the special case of a hyperrectangle (also called an

*orthotope*).
