Islamic star patterns are a beautiful and highly geometric art form. Many analyses have been done of their complex structure and symmetries. We pick up one line of analysis based on placing stars and rosettes in a formation dictated by a tiling of the plane, and develop a software implementation of the technique. We discuss the construction of the designs and show some computer-generated results. 
ON Tiling Patterns Involving Islamic Stars with an Odd Number of Vertices
Islamic star patterns have been extensively studied for their symmetry and aesthetic appeal. This paper presents a simple construction method for generating these stars on computers and constructingExpand
Islamic star patterns from polygons in contact
TLDR
This work presents a simple method for rendering Islamic star patterns based on Hankin's "polygons-in-contact" technique, and introduces a geometric transformation on tilings that expands the range of patterns accessible using this method. Expand

Further Tiling Patterns Involving Islamic Stars with an Odd Number of Vertices
TLDR
A simple construction method for generating Islamic rosette patterns on computers and constructing new tiling patterns that involve rosettes with an odd number of vertices is presented. Expand
Construction of Islamic Stars and Rosettes using Turtle Geometry and Tiling Patterns based on Them
TLDR
This paper presents several new construction methods for stars and rosettes using Turtle geometry and also presents new geometric shapes even more complex than stars androsettes the construction of which is based on Turtle geometry. Expand
Islamic star patterns in absolute geometry
We present Najm, a set of tools built on the axioms of absolute geometry for exploring the design space of Islamic star patterns. Our approach makes use of a novel family of tilings, calledExpand
Hyperbolic Islamic Patterns -- A Beginning
For more than a millennium, Islamic artists and craftsmen have used geometric patterns to decorate buildings, cloth, pottery, and other artifacts. Many of these patterns were “wallpaper” patterns —Expand
Paper: A SHAPE GRAMMAR MODEL TO GENERATE ISLAMIC GEOMETRIC PATTERN
Geometric patterns are the important ornaments of Islamic art and architecture. Polygons and poly-pointed star patterns, especially the 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-sided polygons were mostly used in IslamicExpand
