Convex Pentagons for Edge-to-Edge Tiling, II
- 117 Downloads
Based on Bagina’s Proposition, it has previously been demonstrated that there remain 34 cases where it is uncertain whether a convex pentagon can generate an edge-to-edge tiling. In this paper, these cases are further refined by imposing extra edge conditions. To investigate the resulting 42 cases, the properties of convex pentagonal tiles that can generate an edge-to-edge tiling are identified. These properties are the key to generating a perfect list of the types of convex pentagonal tiles that can generate an edge-to-edge tiling.
