Dynamics of Possible Soft-Matter Quasicrystals of Eightfold Symmetry

Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 260)


Apart from the observed 12- and 18-fold symmetrical soft-matter quasicrystals, and possible 5- and 10-fold symmetrical soft-matter quasicrystals to be discovered, the eightfold symmetrical soft-matter quasicrystals might also be observed in the near future. In addition, 7-, 9- and 14-fold symmetrical soft-matter quasicrystals belong to may be discovered quasicrystal kinds.
