Logo for QuasiTiler 3.0
QuasiTiler draws Penrose tilings and their generalizations. This document explains the interesting geometryinvolved in the processes. The concepts involved are surprisingly simple. The only apparent hurdle that wehave to overcome is working in spaces with more than 3 dimensions. However in the next section we startwith examples in 2 and 3 dimensions where our intuition is useful. Then we extend the same concepts tomore dimensions. I hope that you get some insight on the geometry of... More
