Duoprisms (also called double prisms) are the cross products of two polygons, its as though we are multiplying one polygon by another one - this category has an infinite size, here we will list all of them up to the decagonal ones. Convex ones are cross products of two convex polygons, all others are starry. Some duoprisms are cross products of two identical polygons, these have a higher symmetry - since these are like multiplying a polygon to itself, they are actually the square of that polygon - these polygon squares are a subset of the 4-D powertopes as well as their duals. Their verfs are disphenoids and are therefore related to category 7. As N approaches infinity, the N x N (or N
