Charged pi-meson

Description of tetrahedrons

This group of tetrahedrons is generated as follows. Start with a single tetrahedron. Include three of the four nearest tetrahedrons. From these three tetrahedrons step in the fourth direction to produce three more tetrahedrons. Repeat this pattern until the original tetrahedron is generated. This takes six steps and produces 74 different tetrahedrons. The matrices in this shape are as follows.
