Regular polygons as kaleidoscopes

We are using reflection at the sides of a regular polygon to get a space filling periodic image. Its symmetries depend on the symmetry of the image, which lies inside the polygon. As an example, let us look at the … Continue reading

An equilateral triangle gives us a kaleidoscope of three-fold rotational symmetry. With a square we get two-fold rotational symmetry. Would reflection at the sides of other regular polygons too give periodic images with rotational symmetry ? To get an h-fold … Continue reading
