**Honeycomb (geometry)**

In geometry, a **honeycomb** is a *space filling* or *close packing* of polyhedral or higher-dimensional *cells*, so that there are no gaps. It is an example of the more general mathematical *tiling* or *tessellation* in any number of dimensions.

Honeycombs are usually constructed in ordinary Euclidean ("flat") space. They may also be constructed in non-Euclidean spaces, such as hyperbolic honeycombs. Any finite uniform polytope can be projected to its circumsphere to form a uniform honeycomb in spherical space.
