Abstract:
For n \in N, we interpret the vertex set W_n of the n-cube as a vector space over the field F_2 and prove that a regular n-simplex can be inscribed into the n-cube such that its vertices constitute a subgroup of W_n if and only if n+1 is a power of 2. Furthermore, a connection to the theory of Hamming Codes will be established.
