An aperiodic tiling of variable geometry made of two tiles, a triangle and a rhombus of any angle

  title={An aperiodic tiling of variable geometry made of two tiles, a triangle and a rhombus of any angle},
  author={Vincent Van Dongen},
Aperiodic tiling is a well-know area of research. First developed by mathematicians for the mathematical challenge they represent and the beauty of their resulting patterns, they became a growing field of interest when their practical use started to emerge. This was mainly in the eighties when a link was established with quasi-periodic materials. Several aperiodic tilings made of two tiles were discovered, the first one being by Penrose in the seventies. Since then, scientists discovered other…

An aperiodic tiling made of one tile, a triangle
How many different tiles are needed at the minimum to create aperiodicity? Several tilings made of two tiles were discovered, the first one being by Penrose in the 1970’s. Since then, scientists


Square-triangle tilings: an infinite playground for soft matter.
It is shown how this very rich behavior with either periodic or aperiodic phases appears here as a consequence of the inherent incommensurability between the areas of the two tiles related by the ratio.
Antenna optimized array based on Schlottmann aperiodic tiling
Antenna arrays based on aperiodic tilings have been shown to exhibit low side lobe levels and modest bandwidths over which grating lobes are suppressed. In order to achieve a broadband low side lobe
Aperiodic metal–organic frameworks
This work highlights a subset of the known aperiodic coordination polymers, including both incommensurate and quasicrystalline structures, and comment upon possible reasons for the absence of such structures and propose routes to potentially access a periodic MOFs.

The basic approach is to take a bunch of 2D shapes and impose rules on how they can connect, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, to create patterns with lots of theme and variation.
