waves – a browser app for creating quasiperiodic wallpapers
I have made a browser app that lets you create quasiperiodic wallpapers. You find it at http://geometricolor.ch/waves.html . It uses a symmetric superposition of waves as proposed by Frank Farris and presented by Erica Klarreich in the Quantamagazin in “How … Continue reading
Morphing between square symmetry and eight fold rotational symmetry
A long time ago in “Crazy graph paper” I have shown a morphing between the square lattice and the quasiperiodic AmmannBeenker tiling of eightfold rotational symmetry. We can do similar morphs with mapping functions using waves. The wave vectors (1,0) … Continue reading
Quasiperiodic design with 8fold rotational symmetry from 4dimensional space
Using the recipe of the last post for fourdimensional space (p=4) I got this image of 8fold rotational symmetry: A center of approximate 8fold rotational symmetry is near the lower left corner. Large brown patches appear at roughly equal distances. … Continue reading
checkerboard coloring of quasiperiodic tilings
A long time ago I found a coloring of the rhombs of the AmmannBeenker tiling using two colors such that translations exchange colors, see “twofold color symmetry …“. In particular, there are stars of rhombs of both colors. They define … Continue reading

Dualization method for tenfold rotational symmetry
We now use the dualization method with grids made of several sets of parallel lines. It is important to take the same grids as earlier for the projection method, see “projection method for tenfold rotational symmetry” and “Projection method for … Continue reading
experiment with the projection method
It seems to be foolish to use an even number, such as n=8, in the code of “projection method for 5fold …“. Note, that I built the code for odd n, especially n=5. For n=8 we get only four different … Continue reading
