Penrose tilings as coverings of congruent decagons
- 218 Downloads
The open problem of tiling theory whether there is a single aperiodic two-dimensional prototile with corresponding matching rules, is answered for coverings instead of tilings. We introduce admissible overlaps for the regular decagon determining only nonperiodic coverings of the Euclidean plane which are equivalent to tilings by Robinson triangles. Our work is motivated by structural properties of quasicrystals.
