General software features

PST-Cox is a library of LaTeX macros allowing to draw 2D-projections of regular complex polytopes. Regular complex polytopes are hyperplane arrangements satisfying certain constraints, and whose automorphism graphs are generated by pseudo-reflections (complex reflections). These objects generalize the classical Platonic solids.

Context in which the software is used

This software is used to illustrate research results (see references).
