Abstract: We express the volume of a regular cube in hyperbolic $n$-space as an integral on $[0, \infty )$, and derive from this an asymptotic volume formula for the regular ideal hyperbolic $n$-cube. This in turn is applied to finding an asymptotic lower bound for the least number of simplices into which a Euclidean $n$-cube can be triangulated.
