Check out the new HLFF Blog article by Katie Steckles on the discovery of new aperiodic tilings.
This week at the HLFF Blog, Katie Steckles reports on an unexpected breakthrough in the world of geometry and aperiodic tilings, thus marking progress in an area where nobody had discovered anything in over 50 years. Katie dives into the concepts of periodic, non-periodic, and aperiodic tiling, and showcases the new “hat”, “turtle” and “spectre” monotile discoveries that have excited so many mathematicians in recent weeks.
