In Tilings and Patterns, Grunbaum and Shephard claim that there are only four k- uniform tilings by regular polygons (for some k) that have a dodecagon incident at every vertex. In fact, there are many others. We show that the tilings that satisfy this requirement are either the uniform 4.6.12 tiling, or else fall into one of two infinite classes of such tilings. One of these infinite classes can be fully characterized, while the other can be shown to be equivalent to the class of all tilings… Expand

An integer representation for periodic tilings of the plane by regular polygons
TLDR
A representation for periodic tilings of the plane by regular polygons is described, to represent explicitly a small subset of seed vertices from which all elements of the tiling by translations are generated. Expand

Abstract Several classification theorems involving highly symmetric tilings by regular polygons have been established recently. This paper surveys that work and gives drawings of these tilings—manyExpand
In Search of Demiregular Tilings
TLDR
This paper will compare the lists from some standard references that give a total of 18 demiregular tilings and show that unless the authors add further restrictions, there will in fact be infinitely many such tilings. Expand
