What is ... an isohedral tiling?

This page hosts information on Michael Joos' talk "What is ... an isohedral tiling?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, June 6, 1:00pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Craig Kaplan, which will start at 2pm.


A tiling is a tessellation of the plane and an Isohedral Tiling is a tiling in which all tiles are related by a symmetry of the tiling. One can categorize these tilings into 93 types. The definition leads to a compact symbolic encoding. We will focus on some computational aspects of isohedral tilings and also have a look at an implementation.
